This simple bowl recalls the white-bodied black-glazed ceramic ware of northern China. Some southern Chinese black-glazed wares had entered Japanese tea-ceremony collections by the fifteenth century. Other regional styles became known in Japan only through modern collecting and archaeological investigations. In 1955, Ishiguro became honored as a Living National Treasure for his mastery of the range of Chinese black glazes of the Song dynasty (A.D. 960-1279), which he studied from ceramic fragments collected by scholars.
