NOTE: Due to our holiday we can only send parcels again after our return on August 7th.

Distorted half cylinder shaped kutsugata tea bowl of light, unrefined Mino clay.

The expertly thrown body, heavily trimmed with a potters knife (hera) is covered with the typical, glossy black iron oxid glaze inside and outside. Obviously due to a lack of manganese here it is more a dark brown, which is rare to find on Oribe chawans.

A 'window' on the side has been left unglazed for decoration on iron oxid engobe under a clear ash glaze in the form of triangles and other geometrical figures.

This is a typical Momoyama design. The somewhat irregular foot is typical for the late production of the 1620-ies at the Motoyashiki and Kamagane Kilns.

A high quality wood box is part of the offer.

Size: 7,3 cm height x 14,7 cm diameter (max)
