The Sanage Kiln is an ancient kiln that began in the late Kofun period with the production of sueki ware and disappeared around the end of the Kamakura period. As a central kiln in the Tokai region, it has left behind a huge amount of pottery, and there has never been a region that has continued to smoke on such a long and large scale in any region. Sanage Kogama has an important role in the history of Japanese kilns as the birthplace of Seto and Tokoname in the Middle Ages and Mino in the early modern period.
This is a mountain plate from the Sanage kiln from the Heian to Kamakura periods. The shape of the bowl is distorted, and the ash glaze and ash covering on the edge are the genealogy of the old kiln. How about a tea boat or a teapot stand?
