Mishima, known as Buncheong in Korean, originated with the 15th-16th century Korean wares that were imported to Japan. Sen no Rikyu and other tea connoisseurs became attracted to the distinct designs seen in Mishima tea bowls and larger pieces, that these styles became the standard in the way of tea.
The work is done in Kyoto, which produces most of the Mishima wares and was made by a studio possibly by the name of Horaku, but the signature is difficult to decipher.
Age: 20th century.
