Karatsu Ware Yumino Kiln White Slip Jar with Pine Tree Design


A Karatsu ware jar fired in the Yumino kiln in the Kotaji district’s southern part of Takeo. The pine picture drawn with iron glaze and copper-green glaze is a pattern that represents Ko-Takeo, and usually, the word “Yumino’s jar” refers to this type.

It is presumed that this piece was crafted from the end of the 17th century to the first half of the 18th century since the pine painting with the lower part of the body squeezed and the outline omitted. It has been used as a water jar for many years, and the white slip on the body has changed profoundly to a rich loquat colour like an inherited Kohiki Chawan.

It is in an ideal condition as the Yumino’s work, which is the daily vessel and mostly has cracks, but this piece has almost flawless and has an excellent moisturizing texture. There are no noticeable defects other than the minor glaze flaking and a short hairline on the mouth.
