Another refined, and ephemerally light chawan (tea bowl) by Ohi Toshiro (b. 1927), the 10th Ohi Chozaemon. The Chozaemon family of potters has been associated with the world of the Japanese tea ceremony since the 17th century.

The Chozaemon lineage started with Hodoan (1631-1712), apprentice to the fourth heir of the Raku family of potters. In 1666, he accompanied Senso Shoshitsu (1622-1697), the fourth heir of the Urasenke school of Japanese tea ceremony, to the city of Kanazawa, the capital of the Maeda clan’s province, Kaga (current Ishikawa prefecture). In the village of Ohi, the first Chozaemon established a kiln which still produces superior tea ceremony wares and since the Meiji Restoration, ceramics for everyday living, too.

This particular bowl is also veiled with the ame-yu (amber) glaze, a trademark of Ohi ware, with suble nuances.
