The creations of Mr. Kôji Kamada are part of the permanent works on show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

Mr. Kamada Kôji has practised pottery for 50 years. He has devoted most of his art to the mastery of Tenmoku which requires considerable skill.

Mr. Kamada now lives in Kyoto. Although his works are extremely popular, the artist himself is a modest man of few words. It is the interest of numerous collectors and gallery owners that speak for him.

The origin of Tenmoku is ancient. It comes from Fujian in China and dates back to the Song Dynasty (960-1279).

The light effect specific to the Tenmoku glaze nevertheless permits different variations of colour and shape. This silver grey one of medium size is called Youhenyuteki Wan.

His bowls are actually true works of art that dazzle the eye. But it is in the hand, once the tea is poured in, that they reveal all their magic.

This collector's item comes with a wooden box signed by the artist. Look after it. The ensemble could well appreciate in value over the years.
