Love at first sight! From deep inside the cultural heart of the Japanese Edo Period we are proud to present you another stunning Chawan from our collection.
Rounded wan-shaped bowl, the light, aestetic clay with enclosures is expertly thrown and (with the exception of the foot) the bowl is covered with a fantastic mixed feldspar and ash glaze; the light iron oxide in the clay produced a beautiful colour, changing from pink to orange, a loquat-color, well known from the Korean Ido bowls. The unrefined clay indicates that this piece was produced during the early to mid Edo-period latest.
Hagi-yaki was a so called otome-yaki, which was produced for the household of the daimyos of Hagi only and was never sold to the general public. Consequently Edo period hagi bowls are rather rare.
Great Wabi-Sabi aura with inborn kiln cracks. No repair.
The bowl comes with dark brown wood box, a black cover, a tissue and a certificate of the origin of this tea bowl written on the reverse side of the lid.
Size: 3'' height x 5,3'' in diameter.
