Sue ware is a blue-grey hard earthenware that was introduced from the Korean Peninsula in the middle of the Kofun period (early 5th century). In Japan, until the beginning of the Kofun period, pottery such as Jomon pottery, Yayoi pottery, and Haji pottery were made using a method similar to open burning. It had the drawback of becoming brittle over time. Sue ware, on the other hand, is made using a potter's wheel and fired at a high temperature in an anagama kiln, so the shape is thinner, neater, and harder. However, since it is vulnerable to heat, it was mainly used for tableware and storage tools. This item is a rare tubular Sue ware. It is speculated that it was probably used as a cup. The natural glaze is firmly applied, and it presents a scenery full of rustic beauty. The metal fittings are included as a hanging vase, so we recommend it as a vase for a tea room. I think it's an attractive vase that makes wild flowers stand out. When using it as a flower vase, please use it with a dropper. A wooden box is included. A description of the excavation site is left behind the lid.
