An interestingly shaped chawan (tea bowl) made by Suzuki Goro; a cylindrical vessel, traditionally used for the tea ceremony during winter, as it keeps the beverage hot longer.

Chawan with jet-black glaze have been the most popular by green tea enthusiasts for more than four hundred years. The organic quality of the glaze gives it the strength of timeless sculptures.

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 in excellent condition. It will be shipped in a signed wooden box.
