Black Raku Chawan Sasaki Shoraku Fukumoto Sekio

The basic tea bowl that the founder of the way of tea, Sen no Rikyu developed. Although various accounts remain that Rikyu produced the black and red raku tea bowls, these bowls appeared from the budding aesthetic of Wabi Sabi during a time when opulence and elaborate designs were popular and favored.

The bowl was produced by the current Sasaki Shoraku who has his kilns in Kyoto and Kameoka. The Sasaki family were the first to develop ways to produce more raku tea ware in gas firings and make raku accessible to those who practice tea.

The box is inscribed by the Daitokuji priest, Fukumoto Sekio and has a name attached which is Keijitsu.

Age: 1970-1980.

Size: Diameter 4.5" Height 3.5"
