The source of the name “YORU TATTE TSUKI NI TAISU” refers to the phase from a classical Chinese poem. The piece is made by using a hand-forming technique, which is the traditional style of Raku ware. A rather shiny, blocky black glaze covered whole body even around the trimmed foot. It is a tasteful scenery that impresses us the tranquil flow of time in a serene night under the moonlight. Inside the large, trimmed foot of the piece, the ‘RAKU’ mark of Kichizaemon XV is impressed. The work is one of the “Ha no SHU” series.
