A third request! Green oribe chawan from Japan. Looks wood-fired to me. There's a stamp in the second picture. Who is the potter/kiln?

Thank you!

You are correct that the bowl looks wood-fired but your description "green oribe" is incorrect.

The clay body with the feldspar indicates that it could be from Shigaraki and the seal mark suggests that too.

It might be possible to identify it more if you were able to photograph the impressed seal mark in more detail (closer and with as little reflection as possible).

Ah thanks! Is it at least oribe glaze in your opinion? I have never seen Shigaraki pieces with oribe glaze other than this one...

I am attaching 3 photos of the stamp. Hopefully that's enough. Thanks!

No it's isn't an Oribe glaze, which evolved from Shino glazes with a copper salt blended in.

This looks more like a simpler wood ash glaze that we find on wood-fired work in the UK. Sometimes this can come from the wood used in firing the kiln but with this amount it looks as if a glaze has been added to the bowl before firing - especially if the inside of the bowl has it too.

I will see if I can find the impressed mark.

Very interesting, thank you for the info. Yes, the inside is totally covered by this dark-green glaze as well.

I'm sure SP will help with the ID, nice piece.
Just wanted to say thanks for the object lesson on how to take photographs
of what is an awkward glazed mark.
