This print shows a seated audience at a theater. The three most visible figures wear kimono, the obi tied in the back, and kneel overlooking a balcony above the stage. The figures in the foreground are more clearly defined, the outlines of the figures in the background blend into one another to create a dark undefined area.

Gift of the artist
The vase uses Shigaraki clay and the wood-firing process.  The deformities and imperfections are intentional, and in Iga style.  It has a lopsided lip edge at the top, with a deep indentation circling the vase just below it.  The texture of this piece is splotchy and ridged, and the colors are earth tones, ranging from tans to dark, forest greens.
