Uzukumaru is a flower vase that is often made in Shigaraki ware because of its round shape that looks like it is crouching, but it is a type that is relatively rare in Karatsu.
Along with the scenery of Chosen Karatsu, which was dynamically changed by the kiln, the traces of a spatula with a cross mark called Hori Karatsu are accented.
Metal fittings are attached to the back so that it can also be used as a hanging vase. The real thing is bigger than the photo.
