Simple yet classic styling—this tea bowl is perfect for anyone looking for the quintessential Ido-shaped chawan crafted by one of Japan’s master Hagi potters.

Born in the famed pottery town of Karatsu in 1942, Zenzo Hatano spent a number of years learning the various styles particular to his region before taking up an apprenticeship under well-known Hagi potter Yoshiga Taibi. Winner of a number of awards including the Japan Crafts Exhibition Award in 1977, Hatano’s greatest distinction is his designation as Intangible Cultural Property of Yamaguchi Prefecture in 2002.

It comes with its original wood box signed by the artist (tomobako), a silk pouch, a protective cloth, and an informational insert in Japanese detailing the kiln and artist. *** International shipping & Insurance included in price.
