Another sublime Seto-guro chawan (black Seto tea bowl) made by Suzuki Goro (b. 1941), one of the most recognized contemporary Japanese potters.

Seto-guro chawan are some of the most attractive tea wares. Black tea bowls have been popular with “Chajin” (tea-people) for hundreds of years, as the marriage of emerald tea and dark glaze creates a fascinating sense of harmony, reminiscent of Zen gardens.

Suzuki Goro is a potter who goes beyond that usual appellation. He has developed a unique way of expressing himself through ceramics, basing his work on traditional styles from the Mino tradition: Shino, Oribe, Ki-Seto (yellow Seto), Setoguro (black Seto) and the Karatsu tradition. His works, which have a strong sense of individualism, include tea bowls with colorful painted cars and life size chairs, but he is also a master of more orthodox pieces. In 2002, Suzuki Goro received the very prestigious Japan Ceramic Society Prize.

The chawan is signed and will be shipped in the original signed box. As can be seen on the pictures, it presents a few innocent hairlines, not uncommon on this kind of delicate pottery.
