Here is yet another beautiful chawan (tea bowl), made by a very productive yet little known contemporary Hagi potter named Watanabe Sakaizumi, at his kiln called Sakaizumi-gama. The elegant vessel presents some of the attractive tones of Hagi ware: pink and purple subtly entwined. The bowl stands on a strong and elaborate kodai (foot) where the earthenware seems to gradually become stone, in a microcosmic garden.
The chawan is signed and in perfect condition. It will be shipped in a signed box.
