OKUSO BOWL 02 (Dealer: hotoke antiques) – Quite a deep local mingei folk livingware as a grain-bowl made of tow (from hemp) with waste papers coated in ‘kakishibu’ (persimmon tannin) called ‘Okuso-bachi’ (lit. ‘Hemp-bowl’ in Fukui dialect) used distinctively in Fukui prefecture in Hokuriku region, Japan until Showa 20s (1945-55). Permanently used many times with many restorations with kaishibu-coating, just like ‘boro’ textiles, and more like a formative object like a creature with such organic blackness. Extremely rare piece hardly seen today. In naturally worn‐out condition as is, with black dust.

approx. D 35-32.5cm (13.77-12.79in), H 12-10cm (4.72-3.93in)
