A very interesting chawan (tea bowl) dating from the latter part of the Edo period (1615-1868). It was made by the fifth heir of the Miwa kiln: Kanshichi Rikon ( - 1803).

The Miwa family has been one of the most prominent in Hagi pottery. The first potters of the lineage established a kiln near that town in 1663.

The bowl is in very good condition and very well balanced in the hands; a hard to see 15 mm hairline ends at a minute dent, which I believe is a kiln flaw.(see picture 2)

A sublime small katakuchi (sake decanter) dating from the Golden Age of Karatsu ware, the Momoyama period (1568-1600).

The naturalness of the hand-made vessel is what makes it so attractive, from the subtle “henko” (changes) to the glaze to the “tamari” (vitrified drops) frozen on it.

Underneath, the “mikkazuki” (third day moon) shaped foot with the rough looking, cookie-like bare clay, is a typical feature of this kind of Karatsu pottery.
