Though appearing to be a Muji-Shino vase, the subtle iron decoration under the glaze gives away the true identity of this piece as classic E-Shino. Inspired by Momoyama archetypes, this vase has wonderful throwing marks creating a sense of movement and gesture, a skill that Hayashi Shotaro excels at. I had these photos hanging around and decided to build a slideshow to try to impart what this pot looks like in person. Though subtle in many respects, there is a presence to the vase that single photos just can not capture. You can see this vase over at my marketplace by following the attached link;
