Slightly distorted cylinder shaped (tsuzu) tea bowl with straight walls, made of light, coarse, unrefined Mino clay. The expertly thrown body was trimmed with a potter's knife around the foot ring.

The bowl was partly covered with black iron oxide glaze of the non glossy type (preferable!) and then covered with a black glaze in the style of a Seto-guro bowl. On the other half it is decorated with two oxcart wheels. This beautiful Chawan was made in the 19th century during the Edo Period (1603-1868).

It bears all the characteristics of true wabi-sabi aesthetics and principles, including asymmetry, roughness, simplicity, economy, austerity, modesty, intimacy, and the appreciation of both natural objects and the forces of nature.

No chips, cracks or repairs.

Size: 11,5 cm height x 12,6 cm in diameter.
