Extremely rare: Korean Amamori Chawan of Choson (Yi) Dynasty (1392-1910). Wan shaped tea bowl, thrown from light, refined clay, with very little iron oxide, covered with a white feldspatic glaze with fine crackles and pin holes including the small foot.

Through many years of use the tea has seeped through the holes and crack to discolour the white clay body underneath, creating an effect called amamory - rain leak. The effect is especially strong along the rim...

The deep rounded sides rising from a short straight foot to a lipped rim, covered overall in a carmine-red glaze falling short of the foot and thinning to brown at the mouth-rim...

This chawan is pure beauty - no matter from which angle you look at it.
