Here is a fascinating Chawan (tea bowl) made by Koie Ryoji, one of the best internationally known contemporary Japanese potters. It is another embodiment of the artist’s spirit, with a shape that remains free and moving, rough, unique and dynamic. Its colors and its rawness is reminiscent of a wild landscape. As with many works by the famous artist, this piece’s dynamism conveys pure energy and raw strength. Through its glaze, rough texture and primitive markings, one gets the sense of th...

Cylinder shaped (hanzutsu) tea bowl made of light, fine unrefined Mino clay. Style (trimmed mouth, very controlled glaze) make it appear contemporary with the late Oribe bowls. The expertly thrown body is covered with the typical white, feldspatic Shino glaze which has been poured and under which a decoration of brush strokes has been applied in iron oxide (oni ita) representing grass and fences.

Just the foot ring and its immediate surrounding was left unglazed. The glaze has a beau...

This is a rare Wan type chawan, around 400 years old in shape close to a tenmoku tea bowl. It is thrown on a wheel from coarse, unrefined iron bearing clay.

A stone in the wall has exploded in the fire - a very sought after effect ( see pic number 2 ), giving this type of Karatsu bowls its name: ishihaze (exploding stone). At the rim is a repair in silver lacquer ( refer to pic number ...
