This thrown and slightly manipulated Bizen chawan was made by rising star, Kondo Masahiko. Thrown out of a rich Bizen clay and then carved with rather evocative and primal devices on the front and back the firing then further enhances the division with a rich ash surface on one side and a crinkled grey ash texture and areas of fire flashing on the other. the captivating meandering lip sits above this lyrical form and is completed with a near perfect kodai covered over in olive brown ash and a dark Kuro-Bizen style flashing making for a very fine chawan for use or just a lifetime of appreciation.

This chawan was made by Kondo Masahiko (b.1971) who despite having apprenticed with the world famous Kakurezaki Ryuichi, has managed to go his own distinct way since he set up his own studio in 2003. Since that time he is widely exhibited and published and in 2005 won the Tanabe Museum of Art grand Prix. This chawan is in excellent condition, measuring approximately 13 x 9cm and comes complete with its signed wood box.
