This remarkable tea bowl is from the kilns of Yoshida Shuen (1940-1987)—an apprentice of Miwa Kyusetsu (1910-2012) who was awarded the status of Living National Treasure in 1983. It features a warm crackled glazing with a white translucent overcoat that beads in areas.

Hagi-yaki has a tradition stretching back over 400 years and is a high-fired stoneware type of pottery. Hagi-ware is prized for its subdued colors and classical features, especially the glazing, which is often clear and vivid. Hagi is also well-known for frequently utilizing a milky, flowing white overcoating and crackled glazing as seen here.

This piece measure 5.1 inches in diameter (13cm) and is 3.5 inches tall (9cm). In addition, it features an impressed signature in the clay of the pedestal and a signed tomobako with seal.
