Jose Luis,

I DO enjoy them, but I'd enjoy them more if they were sitting on my shelf! Beautiful, how big are they?

Russell,

These are among my smallest chinese antique pots, roughly about 24 x 23.5 cm. I have quite a few, but the glazed ones occupy a special place in my heart. I really don't think they get the attention they deserve. I also have some non-glazed Kowatari, Red Skin (koudei), Wudei, Namako, Nanban, Lujin and pear skin pots.

Just to tell you a bit more about the Sky Blue glaze (天空蓝釉), these are highly prized. The pea glazed one is a bit more common, but a flawless pot like the one I feature is quite valuable. Pea colored glazed, sometimes referred to as Cochin ware (old name of Vietnam) were also produced in yellow and darker green color. when compared to Kinyou (the blue pot), the glaze is a bit thicker.

Sky blue glaze 天空蓝釉(tiankong lan yóu) or Kinyou glaze in Japanese were produced in the Jun Yao kiln in Yuzou, Heian province, China. The Japanese name is derived from the name of the kiln. Among the colors produced in Jun Yao, the most remarkable were Purple, crimsom, indigo blue and celadon. The sky blue color was used as the basis for the darker colors. Appreciation of the simple sky blue for was popularized later on, mainly by Chinese aristocrats. Later, Japanese collectors sought them and now some fetch a small fortune.

I hope this brief information gives you an idea of these wonderful pots.

Warm regards,

Jose Luis
