Yokino Ware Lipped BowlARCHIVED
A Yokino ware lipped bowl fired in Tanegashima from the end of the Edo period to the Meiji era. It is a dark brown with high-iron contained clay and a flat rim. The potter’s wheel on the shoulder, which shows rustic beauty, is one of the features of the Yokino ware.
It has been pointed out that Yokino ware is influenced by both Korean techniques including the Satsuma ware’s Naeshirogawa type and Namban styles such as Southeast Asia and Ryukyu. From the jar with the era name, it was in operation at the latest in Kyoho 11 (1726), but the kiln was closed in 1902 with the distribution of off-island goods and the shift to clay pipe production.
This piece’s flat rim is a common feature of the Korean Onggi and the Naeshirogawa type, which works for the stacked firing, but there are no traces of stacking marks, and it may have been on the top or became a design. The simple and powerful work is alive and well, and the capacity is about 180ml, which is ideal for sake sets. There are two repairs on the rim and one on the spout. It fits in a well-tailored box.
