The Youzan kiln is well known in Tokoname and all over the world. Pots which are produced at this kiln are very well made with perfect proportions. Glaze colours can be bold and exciting but the pots remain highly functional and very affordable. This container which once must have been yellow has tremendous patina. No cracks are visible but there are three areas on the inside of the feet where it appears the clay 'flaked' away when it was being made, as these areas are as aged as the surrounding surfaces.
