Ofukei Ware Square Plate


A square plate fired in the Seto or Mino during the middle to late Edo period. Ofukei ware has the characteristics of celadon-style pottery using ash glaze mixed with feldspar, which is derived from the fact that it was produced the corner of the Ofuke enceinte (Ofukemaru) in the northern part of the grounds of Nagoya Castle.

This work applies a highly transparent Ofukei glaze on a slip cast quadrangular body, and the bottom surface is exposed. While the distorted vessel shape and the quaint taste create a profound atmosphere, the vessel’s surface retains a natural lustre.

There are two minor chips and a hairline on the rim but there are no noticeable defects other than that.
