A very attractive Hakeme chawan (tea bowl) dating from the end of the Edo period (1615-1868).
In the hakeme style of pottery, a white slip is applied to the vessel prior to firing, a technique developed by Korean potters during the Joseon dynasty (1392-1897). A truly great Hakeme piece is a work of clay as well as a calligraphy.
The brush work inside this particular bowl is beautifully done and the kodai (foot) presents a well balanced contrast of tones and textures in fine yin-yang fashion.
Please let me know if you have some questions.
The chawan is in very good condition and will be shipped in a vintage fitted wooden box.
