A captivating bowl created by Kyoto potter Kawai Zuiho, most likely in the early 70’s. This bowl features a red undercoat which is visible in places through the greenish overglaze. The effect is quite striking and sure to attract the eye. With a convenient indent on the side, this bowl fits comfortably in the hand.
Kyo-Yaki is high-fired ceramic and pottery that centers around the Higashiyama district of Kyoto. Dating back to the 17th century, this style of pottery stems from the the tradition of two great potters: Ninsei Nonomura and his student Kenzan Ogata. Kyo-ware was designated as a traditional craft in 1977.
The bowl is 4.3 inches in diameter (11cm) and 4.1 inches tall (10.5cm) and bears the artist seal at the base. It comes with a signed box and wrapped in a gold cloth.
