Shino Chawan with Motif of Crane by Tayama Honan

Tayama Honan (1903-1980) was an important scholar and leader in the preservation of Important Cultural Properties (Bunkazai) and National Treasures. Honan took great efforts in preserving important calligraphies, documents, and books that defined Japanese culture, history, and art.

The bowl presented is a very heavy and large Shino tea bowl known in Japanese as eshino or painted shino tea bowl. Tayama Honan has combined a motif often seen in Korai or Korean tea bowls and in bowls produced in Kyoto wares and the distinct white Shinto glaze. The bowl was published in a collection of Tayama Honan's works during the 1970-1980 period.

The box that comes with the work was inscribed by Tayama Honan. Honan states that the bowl was created in 1972 (49th year of Showa) November, at a kiln in Tajimi city.
