Awesome pot. Where did you get this one?One of my new Emei pots. Its 2020, so I'm buying pots again. I stopped end of 2019 . I know @0soyoung keeps pestering me about Asahi super dry. I only keep these shot sized ones for Shohin, and Kirin was at my disposal.

My friend Ron Heinen made it. He’s a retired art & ceramics teacher, award-winning artist, and we have been torturing trees together for 25 years. Over the last year he has been making pots, all slab-built. A few have shown up on FB auctions. Really nice pots.me likey... potter?
Very nice glaze. The glaze provides many varied color combinations to pick up and use with a tree. The colors are quietly natural and in good harmony with nature. Great find by you!
That looks like Bigei's signature.My favorite pot, just "resurfaced", I had not looked at it in years. I had wrapped it well and put it away. I bought it in 1989, maybe, spent $175 on it, back then that was a fortune to me. I liked the feel of it. It is unglazed but burnished to a satin smooth finish that is just a delight to touch. I never got around to looking up the signature. Does anyone recognize the maker?
I originally was going to put an azalea in it, later realized azaleas really are easier to grow in deeper pots, so this pot has never had a tree in it. Yet. Maybe someday.
