Some Pots at The Miho Museum

These pots are part of the permanent collection at Miho. The red raku tea bowl is by Honnami Koetsu and the large tsubo is a 15th. Century Shigaraki piece. It has a natural ash glaze from being fired in an anagama kiln and stands over 500mm tall. Some of the pots in the exhibition that was on when I visited were even taller.

  1. I particularly like the Shigaraki piece, Bruce. Lovely rough form and there's no question what direction the fire came from.
