This splendid chawan (tea bowl) was made by a potter named Kimura Koji. The silky veil over creamy tones create a soothing aura and invite the touch, then the lips. This vessel is a superb tea drinking companion for the spring.
Kimura Koji was born in 1936 in Shimane prefecture, on the Sea of Japan, not far from Hagi, where he arrived, in 1967, after having studied other pottery traditions. In 1971, he established his first kiln there. This recognized craftsman has exposed several times in known venues in Tokyo, as well as Osaka and Kobe, among other cities. Kimura Koji is featured in the Directory of Contemporary Chawan (Gendai Chawan Shu; 1996).
