Fujiwara Yū, born in 1932 in Honami, Bizen, Okayama Prefecture, the son of Fujiwara Kei (1899-1983), was awarded the title of "Living National Treasure" in 1996 for his continuing efforts to preserve and transmit the traditional techniques of Bizen pottery. Fujiwara Yū was recognized early on abroad as one of Japan's leading traditional potters, resulting in numerous exhibitions in Japan and overseas. His works are collected by many international public institutions and are part of the permanent exhibition at the Fujiwara Kei Memorial Hall (FAN Museum), a wonderful museum dedicated to the work of the family and the Bizen tradition in Okayama.


Both, the flask and the cup are signed with the potter's mark and come with the original inscribed, signed and sealed wooden box.
