Well Pulley

Artist signed Oribe

13" diameter

The well or rice paddy pulley wheel dates from the turn of the century. Although originally functional, it is a wonderful sculptural object or dramatic trivet.
One of the most distinctive styles of Japanese pottery, it owes its origins to the wares of Shino and Mino kilns in the 15-17th centuries coupled with innovations in kiln style from Karatsu. Tea Master Furuta Oribe promoted and expanded the designs in service of the Tea Ceremony. Handthrown or built, decorated in dipped green glazes with iron decorations, abstractions of the tie-dying, rice paddies, kites, and other common rural images. Most of the pieces in the collection date from the late 19th century, many bearing the signatures of potters recorded by Morse following his visit to Japan in the 1870s.
