Half cylinder shaped (Hanzutsu) tea bowl made of light, coarse unrefined Mino clay, with very little and small ishihaze (exploding stones).
The mouth has been trimmed in a fashion frequently seen in black oribe but rarely in yellow seto bowls. The expertly thrown body is covered with the typical ash glaze inside and outside which has turned into yellow, due to a slight iron oxide content in the clay; the thick and glossy glaze (guinomi-de) has a beautiful, fine crazing. The bowl shows no deformation and is decorated with incised grass on two sides - without the usual application of copper oxide - gorgeous.
The Ki-Seto chawan has a beautiful shape and is perfectly balanced.
It comes with a very good older wooden box.
Size: 8,4 cm height x 10,8 in diameter.
