This wonderful chawan (tea bowl) was made by a potter named Yoneda Mantaro. The attractive form and colors of this vessel are the work of a talented craftsman, but it is at the kodai (foot) that, as with men, that can be best judged. There, shapes and shades maintain a harmonious relationship and echo the grandeur of master Shino tea bowls.
Yoneda Mantaro, born in 1953, was an apprentice to Suzuki Goro for four years. That elegant silhouette which stands on the pedestal of a four hundred year old pottery tradition rings of modernity and timelessness and are in a way subtle marks of Suzuki Goro’s teaching.
Yoneda Mantaro became independent in 1992.
The chawan is signed and in perfect condition. It will be shipped in a signed box.
Dimensions: 11.5 x 8 cm (4.6 x 3.2 in)
