Taizo Yamada Tortoise shell glazed bowl Allure Japanese contemporary Ceramic art
Tortoise shell glazed bowl
The shade similar to this tortoiseshell is an effect created with two different glazes.
This glaze one of his lifework.
This bowl was originally born in Jiangxi's Jizhou kiln on the Southern Song dynasty in China.
His Tortoise shell pattern bowl is as sophisticated as the Southern Song dynasty's Jizhou kiln.
And it has his unique beautiful glow with deep glaze.
The glaze is not monotonous. A beautiful deep amber color (translucent yellow-brown) floating in deep black creates exquisite contrast.
Watching it feels like being sucked into a bowl.
The bowl was acclaimed by Polish film director Jesy Skolimowski.
At the Kagurazaka restaurant, where he ate when he came to Japan, he met this bowl of Yamada Taizo, and the relationship began and became close.
You will realize the splendor of this plate when serving dishes on this bowl.
Enjoy your meal in a practical and artistic bowl.
