Modern and artistic Hasami Tea Bowl by Akitoshi Kurosaki (born 1969). Brown clay is coated with colorful and shiny glazes, which make this bowl to a unique piece of art.
Hasami ware (波佐 見 焼, Hasami-yaki) is a Japanese pottery traditionally from Hasami in Nagasaki Prefecture with a 400-year history. It all started in 1559 with the famous Korean potter brought there by Lordmura Yoshiaki (大村 喜 前 after the Japanese invasion of Korea): Many kilns were built in Hatanohara, Furusaraya, Yamanita and Hasami.
Typical Hasami porcelain uses underglaze cobalt blue and celadon. Today's manufacturers are trying to develop new techniques to produce high quality ceramics, continuing their tradition maintained with 'stone and fire'.
