Remarkable Ki-irabo (yellow irabo) chawan (tea bowls) are few and far between, but this particular bowl, dating from the Meiji period (1868-1912) is one such example.

The play of the vivid yellow glaze over a rough body, scattered with embedded stones, creates a spectacular vessel, whose thin, uneven mouth turns on unsettled sensations; that is the edgy ess...

A superb chawan (tea bowl) dating from the 18th century; middle to late Edo period (1615-1868).

It is a direct descendant of the Korean bowls sought after by the tea masters of the Momoyama period. In those vessels of humble origins, they saw the perfection of balance between simplicity and elegance, “imperfection” and harmony, impersonality and nobility.

The soft wobbling lines of the chawan give it dynamism and though solid, it seems to be always shaping its forms anew. The m...
