Illustrated is a close-up of the yuteki, oil spot style of Kimura Yoshihiro. This evocative surface calls to mind the play, HAGAROMO (The Feather Mantle). The luscious silver feathery trails reach down the tsubo like metallic tendrils enveloping the pot. Given the large size of the pot and the disastrous failure rate, the survival of this piece alone is a significant feat. Created by the son of master temmoku and yuteki specialist, Kimura Morikazu, Kimura Yoshihiro is the perfect inheritor of the dynasty pioneered and forged by the three Kimura brothers; Morikazu, Moriyasu and Morinobu.
