Slightly distorted shoe shaped - Kutsugata tea bowl with a rounded brim, made of light, coarse, unrefined Mino clay during the Edo Period (1603-1868). The expertly thrown body was trimmed with a potter's knife in its lower part.

In the style of Oribe-Kuro bowls the bowl was covered with a black glaze which was not achieved by hikidashi (pulling the red hot bowl from the kiln) but by adding cobalt the the iron oxide glaze.

A window on the side was left unglazed and was decorated. Beside the foot ring is a kiln mark (kamajirushi).

No chips or cracks.

Size: 8 cm height x 13,5 in diameter.
