Karatsu Ware Kishidake-Saraya Kiln Kawakujira Dish


A Ko-Karatsu Mukouzuke fired in the Kishidake-Saraya kiln during the Azuchi-Momoyama period. The stacking clay marks, in which the glaze is scrapped off in a square, clearly shows this kiln’s characteristics. The surface is losing its lustre, but it has a superior clay taste similar to the famous Kishidake-Hobashira kiln and the iron glaze with a rippling edge Kawakujira is arresting.

There are small Kintasugi and Gintsugi repairs on the rim and the surface is entirely aged. Other than that, there are no noticeable defects and it is sufficient for practical use.
