Chop I.D. please

Post  Peter E. on Sun Jan 19, 2014 7:45 pm

This is a pot i have had for some time but i cannot find any info on the chop mark.



I thought it might be " Heian Tofukji" but i can't confirm.

It is Aiba Kouichirou, better known by his kiln name Kouyo (also spelled Kouyou or Koyo).

Peter,

Thanks for sharing. This is a common shape and finish for Koyo. It is still offered through the latest Tokoname catalog (pg. 15) I have found the color and finish particularly well suited to needle junipers, but a white pine could also work.
