A magnificent chawan (tea bowl) by Shimizu Uichi (1926-2004).
Tenmoku bowls are some of the most difficult to make, but the artist, a great technician of his art, succeeds in creating another wonderful vessel, reminiscent of the classic bowls cherished by the Ashikaga shogun of the Muromachi period (1336-1573). They are certainly the easiest to understand as microcosms, as chawan are regarded to be.
Shimizu Uichi was recognized as Important Intangible Cultural Property of Japan (Living National Treasure) in 1985.
