Can anyone help

Post  Dan Barton on Fri Jun 03, 2011 8:35 am

The pictures attached below are of a small pot I purchased a few years ago in Japan in the 'Green Club'. It's a fascinating pot (heavily carved with images of crabs) and I haven't seen anything like it before. Can anyone tell me anything about it and is anyone able to read the name of the potter? I'd be grateful for any info. Thanks in advance. Dan

Hello Dan

Hi Dan, I missed this post somehow. This pot was made by Kotani Zeshin. Crab relief pots are a specialty of his, also old men with beards! Sorry for the delay, I missed this thread. Shoot me an IM and I'll show you his Rakkan and Hanko, and the match. I didn't really need those in this case, Zeshin carving pots are so unique as to be identifiable on site!
