Musashi-gama, Hyogo, Japan.

These pots were made by Fukudenji Daiei Sensei at his Musashi-gama in Himeji Japan. The white markings were made by soaking fishing net in white slip and placing over the piece before firing. The second photograph was taken at an Ikenobo Ikebana exhibition in Kyoto showing how this pot was used by a Master of Ikebana. We never heard what happened but Fukudenji Sensei was, at the time (1982), building a kiln in Versailles, France, which was also to be called Musashi-gama.


  1. Would that be white slip on a dark clay body?
    Very intriguing sculpture with the elements added by the flower arrangement.
