Accent in favorite pot
« on: September 09, 2010, 08:49 PM »
Good Evening All,

Enjoy my miniature Oncidium Orchid, Onc. Twinkle in one of my favorite pots a Tokoname Yaki by Motozo (I believe he may have died this year). It was an anniversary present form my wife last year. If anyone has any info on the potter I'd appreciate knowing more about him.

There is a person EBaybselling pots by Motozo, kei1974........ You might want to follow up with them. I have purchased pots from them, with shipping their prices are fair compared to the Tokoname catalog.

Is that a frog or something hanging off the right side of the pot?

Yes, it is a frog that the potter added. We really like the pot due to the frog among other things.

That's a really nice pot.  I had a similiar one with a crab that I traded for sevral other pots and stock.
Kei on eBay always has some great shohin pots up, and Keiichi has been very friendly and helpful to me in the past identifying some pots by stamp.  I'm sure he would be helpful with Motozo info if you email him jrob.

Hello again Jrob.  Mr Keiichi has the following to say in regards to this post about Motozo:
"I didn't know that many people are talking
about me and my listing pots. I was very glad to see this.  Thank you for
information.
But someone misunderstand about Motozo. He isn't dead yet. Still alive.
Just the designer of his pot (Mr. Yamamoto) is dead. Motozo is not a special
bonsai pot potter. He is a specialist of guinomi, yunom, tea pots, Chawan
for tea ceremony.  Mr. Yamamoto ordered Mr. Motozo to make bonsai pots."

A little insight into why thy the Motozo pots are prized and rare, perhaps.
