SHINO-ORIBE SMALL DEEP PLATE WITH BAMBOO GRASS DESIGN (Dealer: minakata antiques) – Momoyama – early Edo period, Japan, late 16th – 17th century. approx. D 14.3cm (5.62in), H 2.8-3.3cm (1.10-1.29in)
Unususal form with slightly deeper depth for this type of excavation from the old kiln site. Refined total balance of its make as this is the genuine Shino-Oribe pottery ware specially used for ‘Cha-no-yu’ (Japanese tea ceremony), with solid *yobitsugi restoration as functional “reborn” design, besides a small chip (1.2cm (0.47in)) at foot (but in stable condition on flat surface).
*Yobitsugi – One of the Japanese traditional repair method applying the substitute other fragments of same age of the missing fragments to that missing parts, like “re-design” with other but similar material, which requires high repair skill with detailed adjustment (as shaping the substitute fragments to the missing parts, besides just following the ordinary process for ‘kintsugi’ gold-repair), that also tend to be judged for its aesthetics “re-designed” by the repairer’s sensitivity rather than its function, as it’s a work of art rather than just a repaired piece.
