Hokido Pot from My Collection

This pot is made by Naoyuki Maenami better known as Hokido. It is a scalloped edged round with cloud feet and a diameter of 8 inches. This shape was made in sizes ranging from 4 to 12 inches. I have 8 and  12 inch examples in my collection. This potter’s work bears a strong resemblance to Bigei and is every bit as good if not better than his more famous counterpart. His kiln was in production for a relatively short period of time, as a result there are there are fewer Hokido pots on the market than Bigei pots.
