Subject:Japanese Studio Pottery identification
Posted By: Tom G Fri, Oct 01, 2021 IP: 2602:304:322d:1169:3

Hello,
I am hoping that someone will be kind enough to share any information about this set of cups. I bought them used at a flea market in the late 1970s or early 80s. They have always been a mystery to me.
I've heightened the contrast on some photos to make the red chop marks easier to see.
Thank you,
Tom

There is a greater probabiity that it is Korean made than Japanese one. On the Japanese language net I couldn't find any clue to this name.
Inscriptions,
甕形方種  - Pot shaped pottery*
湯呑    - Tea mug(s)
Signature,
悦樂造   - Yeolrak-jo - Made by Yeolrak
(Japanese reading; Etsuraku-zo - Made by Etsuraku)
Seal,
悦樂    - Yeolrak (Etsuraku)

*Pottery with a shape that has a small difference between the rim of the mouth and the neck/body.

With regards,
I.Nagy
