Kawase Shinobu receives a stipend from the Japanese government to help him preserve the techniques he practices for future generations.
Kawase Shinobu comes from a family of potters with more than a century of tradition in engaging with Chinese prototypes. The jar’s name in Japanese, shukaiko, literally “sake gathering jar,” references the shape of containers that first arrived by sea from China carrying rice wine. The jar has a ribbed surface with a lavender-tinted blue-green glaze. The lid is shaped like a lotus leaf.
