We proudly like to offer a 400 year old perfect Korean Gohon Ido shape chawan.
The fine, little iron bearing clay has been mixed with sand (suna gohon) and thrown into an ido shape widening towards the rim.
The light body is covered with a clear, little greyish ash glaze, reacting with the iron oxide in the body to develop the pink spots typical for that kind of Gohon bowls.
The high foot has been trimmed when the clay was leather hard producing a rough surface which resulted in kairagi (shrinking glaze) typical for Ido tea bowls.
Size: 8,1 cm height x 13,2 cm diameter.
The bowl comes with an old black stained wood box.
