Murasaki Shino Chawan by Suzuki Tomio
235,000 yen - EMS shipping included

This chawan (tea bowl) is a favorite of mine. The spectacular calligraphy-like stroke on the shomen (face) is reminiscent of the entrance into a Zen garden, broken in such dramatic angles. And the purple (murasaki) tones of the robe of the bowl suggest, here too, a spiritual trait to the chawan that has the aura of a high priest. Born in Kyoto in 1948, Suzuki Tomio established his first kiln in the southern suburbs of Kyoto, in the Yawata district, in 1988 and since 1989 specializes only in Shino-yaki. He is especially known for his Yohenkin Shino, which he developed on his quest to always creating his craft anew. Suzuki Tomio has held expositions at major venues in Japan and has been the recipient of several awards. He is also featured in books which recognize contemporary Japanese ceramists. The bowl is signed and in perfect condition. It will be shipped in a signed box. Dimensions: 13 cm x 9 cm (5.2 in x 3.6 in), Weight 400 g (14 oz) More pictures available on demand.
