Very nice pot. Don't see wood fired pots like that too often with that kind sheen.
I remember seeing somewhere that he made a bunch of woodfired pots a few decades ago so that one you linked could have been one made then.
One of his woodfired pots sold on a particular auction site earlier this year. If I recall correctly it went for around $900.
Whoever bought that one for 55000 yen really got quite the deal I think
