A charming akaraku chawan done by third generation potter Kato Ryusei. This piece was fired at the Akahiko Kama which has produced pottery in Aichi prefecture since 1956 and who have the distinction of being commissioned not only by the Showa Emperor and Empress but also by the later Heisei Emperor.

With a soft luminance and subtle charm, this piece would be an valued addition to the collection of any budding tea practitioner.

The bowl is 4.7 inches in diameter (12cm) and 3.1 inches tall (8cm) and bears the artists seal. In addition, it comes with a signed tomobako and an insert in Japanese describing the Akahiko Kiln and Kato aesthetic of pottery.
