Aka Raku Bajouhai Chawan by Yoshimura Rakunyu
Sold; Thank you

The term bajouhai has associations with the samurai culture. Uesugi Kenshin, war lord who ruled most of the region known as Echizen was known to use a bajouhai, not for tea, but for sake. The bajouhai, in a way appears in a chalice like form and water was drunken from such vessels.

It is not known when the first bajouhai tea bowl appears but odd objects such as these were used to enjoy the rather "uniqueness" of the bowl.

Work is made by Yoshimura Rakunyu, who for three generations have been producing raku ware. The kiln specializes in emulated works and painted raku pieces.
