“In a modern world, I am seeking for a work which creates tranquility and can suggest Wabi and Sabi. Mino has the wonderful Shino tradition handed down by our ancestors, I would like to continue progressing in daily life with the ceedo; ‘Look at the old to learn the new’. “ Yamada Seiji

Illustrated is a classic Momoyama influenced Shino chawan by Mino veteran potter; Yamada Seiji (b.1932). The form, glaze quality, sparse and fluid decoration and wonderful kodai make for a splendid statement about modern Shino which takes its cues from the Momoyama archetype.
