Unfortunately, there is little information available.
Eiichi is the grandson of Shibuya Deishi, a Hagi master. He is under his tutilage, but is showing a talent and style that some may already prefer.
The ROCK has gone through a pretty complicated process in order to achieve it appearance. I believe I already posted this, but it has gone through at least 3 firings. Here is from my previous post regarding the making of a ROCK.
My understanding of the ROCK ... it takes at least 3 firings to make the ROCK. The inside is wheeled I believe and fired, it has a white glazed interior (straw ash I believe). Then the dark rough surface is applied and fired, and then finally the straw ash white glaze on the exterior ... and fired again. Something like that.
So, like the SnowDrift, the interior is wheeled, and then the exterior is hand worked and carved ...
But they have had a white glazed interior, which I would likely spec.
