Ido-gata Hagi chawan made to resemble a katakuchi pouring vessel. Glazed in a milky, creamy pink to beige tinged Hagi glaze, this chawan has a “ceremonial” spout applied, harkening back to the early days of chanoyu when found objects played the essential role in the ceremony. This form is common in Hagi-yaki and was made by a number of the veteran Hagi potters, including Hatano Shigetsu.

This kata-kuchi chawan was made by Hatano Shigetsu, a veteran potter in Hagi and was most likely made in the period just prior to the late 1970’s when the almost all pervasive Shiro-Hagi became all the rage. The style of the bowl and its glazing points back to the age where Hagi was reborn through the efforts of Miwa Kyuwa, Tahara Tobei, Sakakura Shinbei, Yoshiga Taibi and others.

This chawan measures 5.3” x 3.5” and is in perfect condition and comes complete with its signed box.
