A black cloak is draped from the shoulders of this mysterious character lurking in the shadows of the tea room by legendary potter Hori Ichiro enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Seto-guro Chawan. Matte over much of the surface, someplaces the blackness shines like midnight through the fog, the rough sandy texture of the clay reveals itself to the hands more than to the eye, adding a sense of intimacy when holding the bowl.
