Description This ceramic tea bowl, also known as chawan used in the traditional Japanese tea ceremony, was potted in a classic Ōryōki form (monk's begging bowl) with low foot, slightly inward body and a harmonious proportion. It was made in the style of Shino ware, a sub type of high-fired Mino wares produced in the Seto and Mino areas of Gifu Prefecture in Japan. Mino ware was originated in the late 16th century of Edo period as Japan's first high-fired white-glazed pottery on which iron-oxide brush markings were used for surface decoration, a departure from previous techniques of carving, incision or applique. Within Shino wares, this bowl is of a sub-type known as E-Shino (painted-Shino) as it was decorated with iron-oxide brushed strokes under the glaze. Upon close inspection, the surface display an exquisite color variation resulting from the the wabi-sabi style of uneven glazing using milky white and ash feldspa glazes. On top of the glaze, many small pinholes known as suana in Japanese (nest holes) are prominently present. This is a characteristic of Shino ware named yuzuhada (citron skin) and this feature was historically cherished and favored by tea masters. The bowl displays a wonderful patina formed by the passage of time.
Examining the bowl, we dated it to mid-late 19th century (late Edo period).
