This black Bizen chawan (tea bowl) is from one of the last firings by the late Bizen master potter Masamune Moriyasu, also known as Satoru. As with the Nakamura family, he was a potter of traditional wares and was very highly thought of in Japan. This chawan is a fine example. It has a fine surface with some ash deposits. The artist’s signature is on the top of the original wood box and his mark is on the bottom of the chawan. It is 2 ¾” high and 5 ¾” wide. It is in excellent condition.
