Guest Book
This chawan (tea bowl) is an emulation of a bowl named 鉄壁 (Teppeki) by Kon’ami Koetsu (1558-1637) a genius artist and calligrapher from the Edo period (1615-1868), who has greatly influenced Japanese art.

It was made by Ohi Chozaemon IX (1901-1986). 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.

The chawan is in excellent condition and will be shipped in a signed wooden box (tomobako).
