Can anyone ID this pot?

Post  NeilDellinger on Sat Jun 04, 2011 12:34 pm

This was a gift from a good friend. I've always been curious of the maker. I like the glaze and especially the hanko.

Thanks for your help!
Neil

Hello Neil,
Good news! I had to get some help on this one! The pot is by "Shigeru Fukuda" and the sign reads "Shigeru Gama" or Shigeru kiln.

Hey Ryan.

Can you tell us anything else? Where is the Shigeru kiln? Does he specialize in small, handmade pots like this?

When Neil first posted this I wondered if it was by a professional potter, or a simple hobbiest. It has a rather homemade, primitive feel - not that that's a bad thing - and the glaze is really different too.

Great little pot Neil!

Sure, Russell, here's the info I sent Neil this morning.
Fukuda Shigeru was a profesional
Car racer and bonsai lover, especially Satsuki, and started making pots for his own trees.  In 1986, he went pro with the pottery, founding his own kiln.  He's self taught, and his glazes are often compared to Tofukuji.
His pottery is very desirable.

Ryan,
Thanks very much for the information. Somehow knowing a bit more about the potter makes an already special little pot even more so. Currently there is a nice little elm in the pot. I planned on exhibiting it this year at the Midwest bonsai show in Chicago this August.

You've most certainly got the knack for identifying pottery. I'm sure this helps in appreciating the art form even more.

Take care,
Neil
