Matsuo Ichirô is a sculptor and potter, the second generation of the Gyorenbô-gama kiln in Saga Prefecture. He produces a wide range of items, and draws inspiration both from his training as a sculptor and from the heritage of his father, also a potter. He uses mainly karatsu clays and original glazes, and he fires his work in electric, gas and wood-fired kilns.
In 2013, he spent two months at the Pouligny Tuilerie pottery studio near Limoges.
Owing to the depth of the turquoise blue of the glaze, which is copper, not cobalt, based, the beautiful green of matcha in this bowl is spellbinding.
A unique piece.
