A lovely Shino tea bowl fashioned from coarse Mino clay and covered in a crackled feldspar glazing. The front and sides of the bowl are decorated with paintings of abstract foliage resembling Iris leaves and the base of the bowl is unglazed, displaying rough clay. The paintings, which are applied using a ferrous glaze, along with the han-zutsu shape (half cylinder) are very typical of this type of Shino-ware.

In excellent condition, this piece measures 5 inches in diameter (12.6 cm) and stands 3.3 inches tall (8.4cm). It comes with a wooden box and a protective silk pouch (shifuku).
