Seto-guro Chawan by Miyamoto Takeyoshi

One of the most fascinating aspects of Seto-guro (black Seto) pottery is its organic quality. The meanders of glaze on this particular chawan (tea bowl) could be compared to many things, and I think the culinary truffle could be an interesting example. Also born from the earth, its rarity and heavenly qualities make it a gem to be sought. This is a vessel for connoisseurs and green tea drinkers. As with original Raku tea bowls, the emerald beverage in this black chalice will be an awesome spectacle and an invitation to inner experiences of a higher realm. The chawan was made by a potter named Miyamoto Takeyoshi, born in 1911, who worked in the city of Seto, cradle of the Mino pottery tradition. Some of Miyamoto’s pieces are exposed in the Nagoya castle and in an Art Museum in Köln, Germany. He has also been exposed at the Art Academy of San Francisco. The chawan is signed and in perfect condition. It will be shipped in a signed box. Dimensions: 12 cm x 9 cm (4.8 in x 3.6 in), Weight: 390 g (13.7 oz) More pictures available on demand.
