Japanese Asahi Yaki Tea Bowl Chawan
Sold; Thank you. Norwood, Australia

Asahi yaki is a kiln found near the banks of the Uji river south of Kyoto city. The kiln was founded in the Edo period by potters who settled there and noted families such as the Matsubayashi family have produced the fine yet simple objects for tea.

The bowl contains an inscription, the guests have left and will never return, (Jpn: Kyaku sarite, kuru koto naku). The initial impression may sound strange, but in a way relates to the famous phrase, ichigo ichie or one time one meeting where each gathering is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Age: 20th century

Size: Diameter 5" Height: 3.25"
