Found this wonderful and heavy 8 1/2" diameter x 7" tall cobalt blue bowl at the Cleveland GW today. I usually only go out that far about once a month. So it's always nice to come home with something from that long trip. The color is so bright you have to wear shades ! A beautiful intense blue drip glaze that turns a speckled azure through the middle of the bowl. It has a simple pedestal form that doesn't compete with the color. My guess is it's not that old. It does have a tiny gold and black foil label inside the hollow pedestal. It has a couple of characters and "Japan" written on it. A translation might reveal the maker but I'm not sure. -Mike-

OK ... been looking at a bunch of "kanji" and the first character on the label appears to be "East". Working on the second one at this point.

    Is this Kyoyaki you think?

    Thanks racer4 :) I'm not familiar with Kyoyaki but it gives me something to research. I'll have to check it out. -Mike-
