A superb chawan (tea bowl) by Ogawa Choraku II (1912-1991), from the well known lineage of raku potters, whose kiln was established in Kyoto, in 1904.
The founder of the Choraku lineage of raku potters studied under Keinyu (11th Raku Kichizaemon) and Konyu (12th Raku Kichizaemon), and in 1904, with the support of Konyu, founded his own kiln in Kyoto. He received the name Choraku in 1906, by Mokurai, the head priest of Kennin Temple; raku ware makers are usually very close to tea ceremony circles and Buddhist temples, for the three are intimately bound spiritually.
This particular bowl emulates Oni-hagi chawan, a spectacular kind of bowl covered by an intricate white glaze.
Kindly inquire if you have some questions.
The chawan bears the seal of its maker and comes in a signed wooden box (tomobako). It shows traces of repairs made in lacquer and gold (kintsugi).
Size: 12.4 x 8.4 cm (5 x 3.3 in)
