Yunomi - Shino Glaze?

Post by Davee on August 15th 2015, 5:48 pm

Small yunomi with white bubbly glaze (shino?) and plant decoration (bamboo?), indistinct mark that I think is partially obscured by glaze.

Nice. Yes shino glaze with under painting. Modern Japanese in the traditional style. Mark might be a potter's signature but more likely the kiln or Prefecture.

It looks a typically Japanese shino pot, which often has underglazed brush decoration.

I think that finding the mark is going to be very difficult but it is likely to have been made in the Seto or Mino areas.

Thanks for the info both. Just had a quick look and Mino looks the more likely area, that'll give me something to research.

It isn't really as the type of pottery made in both areas is very similar.

It all goes back in history when the ruler of the Seto potters was being attacked and so he moved his potters to Mino so they weren't captured by his enemy. Once the hostilities were over they moved back to Seto but since then the types of pottery produced in both areas has been almost identical.
