White Shino Chawan by Suzuki Osamu (Kura)
sold

A splendid chawan (tea bowl) made by a master of the genre, Suzuki Osamu (Kura), born in 1934, who was designated Important Intangible Cultural Property of Japan (Living National Treasure), in 1994.

Shino potteries have been made in the Mino province (current Gifu prefecture), essentially as tea ceremony ware, since the end of the 16th century.

This bowl is an earlier work by the famous potter, but it already shows balance and a desire to expand beyond its simple design. The near immaculateness of the glaze is appropriate for an original piece, yet the bowl has an inherent dynamism that certainly brought the artist to higher spheres.

Please let me know if you have some questions.

The chawan is in perfect condition and comes in a signed box (tomobako).
Dimensions: 13.8 x 8.2 cm (5.5 x 3.3 in); 523 g (18.3 oz)
