Little distorted half cylinder shaped (kutsugata) tea bowl with flaring mouth made of light, coarse unrefined Mino clay. The expertly thrown body was covered with the typical green copper oxide glaze inside and outside. A 'window' on the side has been left unglazed and is decorated with fern sprouts. This is a typical late Momoyama design, which seems to represent winter and summer. You can find a black Oribe bowl with a similar design in the Nezu Museum.

The somewhat irregular but very strong foot is typical for the late production of the 1620ies at the Motoyashiki kiln.

Size: 8,4 cm height x 11,7 cm in diameter.

Woodbox and shipping included.
