Special autumn offer:

Another beautiful chawan from our familiy collection: square cylinder shaped (hanzutsu) tea bowl made of light, fine, unrefined Mino clay, with a flaring mouth in shape of a half pipe.

Shape and style make it appear contemporary with the late Oribe bowls. The expertly thrown body is covered with the typical black oniita engobe inside and outside - with the exception of the bottom - over which a white, feldspatic Shino glaze has been poured. Just the foot ring and its immediate surrounding was left unglazed.

The decoration scratched into the iron oxide engobe is an iris (shobu).

The somewhat irregular foot is typical for the late production of the 1620ies at the Motoyashiki and Kamagane kilns. The bowl has a beautiful shape and is well balanced.

It comes with an antique wood box.

Size: 8,8 cm height x 11,4 cm in diameter.

No chips or repairs except natural inborn kiln cracks.

Shipping included.
