Guest Book

One day Radhanath Swami says 'true treasure lies within. It is the underlying theme of the songs we sing, the shows we watch and the books we read. It is woven into the Psalms of the Bible, the ballads of the Beatles and practically every Bollywood film ever made. What is that treasure? Love. Love is the nature of the Divine'.

This chawan is a real true treasure, breathing the love of its artist. Korean made wan-shaped tea bowl made of iron bearing unrefined clay typical for the mishima (buncheong) type ceramics produced in old Korea in the 16th century. The well thrown body is covered with the typical white, feldspatic engobe, which had been applied with a brush, while the bowl was turning on the potters wheel. Over the engobe is a clear ash glaze.

When the Japanese teamasters like Murata Juko and Takeno Joo developed the concept of wabi, Chinese tenmoku bowls did not fit anymore and the Korean bowls were adopted.

This is an especially beautiful piece without flaws and blemishes. The white engobe inside is discoulered by tea from many years of careful use. Incomparable item.

The bowl has recent wood box of good quality, which is inscribed on the lid Hakeme, Naruto (this is the name after the famous whirlpool near Shikoku).

Size: 7 cm height x 15,1 cm in diameter.
