One of a kind! Very rare and unique Seto Chawan from the Meiji Period (1868-1912) which combines a unique mosaic pattern glaze on the outside with an artistic Neriage/Nerikomi technique on the inside. There is a signature of the potter inside the foot.
Nerikomi (練り込み , lit. "kneading") is an artistic technique for creating Japanese pottery in multiple colors of clay. The technique is also called neriage (練上げ), although this term also refers to the throwing of multiple colored clays on a wheel. Neriage or clay kneading is made by piling up and kneading together different colors of clay. All sorts of patterns can be produced depending on the method used to combine the clay colors, with cross-sections of kneaded clay appearing on the surface of the ceramics. Different colors of clay contain different elements, and care must be taken to make sure that the piece doesn't break or come loose.
No chips or cracks.
