A "find" of mine, to be used as fresh water container (mizusashi) for the temae in October (nakaoki temae mizusashi). This bulbous vessel from the late 19th century is covered with a salt glaze, and it is slip-glazed on the inside. There is also ash encrusted on the outside of the vessel. A chip in the rim has been restored with lacquer and gold, but the vessel is in good condition and watertight. There is a subtle pattern on the bottom left by slicing with a cord. The front (shomen) is easily identifiable by an accidental splash of glaze. I have shaped a glazed, maroon-colored lid with a handle made of rope to top this mizusashi. This unique vessel is my own and is not for sale.
