Cylinder shaped (hanzutsu) tea bowl made of light, fine, unrefined Mino clay. The style of the foot lets it appear contemporary with the late Oribe bowls. But the shape of the expertly thrown body, the orange skin effect on the typical Shino glaze with beautiful orange 'fire colour' recalls the days of the single chamber kilns, but the glaze and the somewhat irregular foot is typical for the late production of the 1620's at the Motoyashiki and Kamagane kilns.

The bowl has a beautiful shape and is well balanced.

Bowls of this style inspired the artist Mark Rothko among other things to create his abstract colour compositions (like his abstract painting No. 8 - 1952 - see picture No. 11).

No cracks, no repairs. The chawan comes together with a good Japanese wood box.

Size: 9,3 cm height x 12,4 cm diameter.
