A beautiful bluish-green salt glaze on this Sencha tea set by Hamada Tomoo enclosed in the original signed wooden box and date to 2014. The set consist of tea pot and six tea cups . The glaze crawled and settled into lights and shadows, capturing that effect so sought in salt glazes, like if it is alive, and it is alive with brilliant colors. A sublime example of this artist’s work.
