Fantastic and perfectly shaped Bizen chawan by great contemporary artist Hiroshi Toyofuku. It has a stunning glaze with a fine abstract 'landscape' of colors on it. It fits smooth in the palm of the hands and gives you a real warm feeling.
The chawan has his sign and comes with the original woodbox. Please note, his art connects perfectly past and present and is hard to get on the market.
