A jar that caught my eye in the auction, where thousands of antiquities were arranged in a motley assortment.

It was not glamorously painted or shining, but its tense form gave it an aura that was different from those around it.

The shape of the jar is wide from the bottom to the waist, and then it is squished in the dogleg shape.

The mouth is wide like a water basin.

The sharp form of the jar and the delicate mouth with its slight rise are also remarkable.

The body of the vessel has a sharp piece of pottery like a crescent moon that adhered to the body of the vessel.

It is likely that a similar vessel fell over and stuck to the body.
The deep green color of the natural glaze is also very beautiful.

Sue ware, which began by imitating the shapes of metalware with ceramics, has an appeal that combines the tension of metalware with the improvisational qualities of pottery.

It is a familiar and unassuming vase, but at the same time it creates a good sense of tension in a space.
