Amdouni Bonsai Pot - Chidori
A smaller round shohin, or accent pot, with relief carving to the body and feet. The pot is glazed in a superb celadon and sits on carved feet. To the body of the pot there are a series of 'Chidori' birds with a patterned band below. The feet also are decorated with relief carved patterns.
Celadon is an ancient glaze from China that people have tried to emulate for years. Originally the translucent green was revered by Emperors who likened it to Jade.
