A humble chawan (tea bowl) made in the Shino style of pottery by a potter named Kato Toyuki.
The fine crackled white glaze softly envelops the vessel, while the central underglaze marking, that seems to come out of an ancient sutra, gives it a mysterious air.
Please let me know if you have some questions.
The chawan is in very good condition; it presents one small crack that was made during firing (see picture 11). The bowl comes in a signed box.
