Here we have the maverick of Mino showing off his skills again with a superb chawan in green and white with iron floral designs by Suzuki Goro enclosed in the original wooden box titled Oribe Chawan and signed in the lower left corner. The sandy white clay, felt even through the glossy glazes, lends the bowl a heart, and the undulating rim gets it pumping.
Size, W 12.1 x 14.3 cm (5 x 6 inches) H 9.6 cm (4 inches)
