Large Bizen Style Tsubo

This large Bizen style Tsubo (storage jar) is one of mine fired in our large anagama for nine days. It is made of a high iron bearing clay and has been thrown in two parts and then joined.

  1. What an exqusite form what is the actual size?
    I am hoping that I am fortunate enough to have one of your early pieces.
    It is a small vessel beautifully bellished with a stylized line drawing of a woman on a horse. The piece is signed The Martins on the front in the thick glaze that partially covers the surface.
    Is this a piece that could be attributed to you and your late wife?
    Thank you for your consideration.
