A strong, banded round unglazed pot with an outwardly curving lip by Kimura Akio. This has the same characteristic Chinese like clay texture to it and years of patina and age have begun to develop. Ideal for a powerful shohin either as semi or full cascade.
Kimura Akio was a ceramicist with an interest in Shohin Bonsai and became associated with the still active Yokohama Ippin-kai, a shohin and pot making club in the seventies. He made very few bonsai pots and so there are not many available.
