 A beautiful one-of-a-kind textured and white crouching rabbit was made by a Japanese potter from Yakushima Island, (east of Kyushu). The artist demonstrates a redefined ability in creating crackle glaze ceramics as a valid medium for sculpture. The Hare’s face is exceptionally expressive.

This impressive Japanese Hare has well-defined details: big flappy ears, button nose, expressive eyes, paws, and yes a button tail, on a finely rendered gloss textured glaze finish simulating its’ fur. The piece is unsigned.

Vintage Condition: Exceptional. “As is”, and retains the original craft/workmanship. Any discoloration, chipping/cracking, surface wear, or structural damage noted.
