Nanban Ware. Tanegashima style

Nanban (meaning foreign) ware came to Japan from parts of southern Asia. The oldest example of this style of pottery arrived in Japan in the 16th Century. The pots are woodfired to mid range temperatures in a reduction atmosphere, and characterised by rough surfaces, iron rich clay bodies and an absence of heavy ashing.
Shikamaru Takeshitain the large, quiet pots of Shikamaru Takeshita one can see the silhouettes of big-bellied African water carriers and Japan’s own Jōmon pottery.

His square-lipped pouring bowls are refined with a touch that belies the coarseness of his clay, while blushing wood-fired porcelain bottles shimmer with pink and purple pearlescence.
