Japanese Mino Ware Oribe Type Chawan Tea Bowl

$ 2,600
  • Description
    A Japanese Kutsu-gata (clog-shaped) chawan (tea bowl) circa 19th century possibly older. The stoneware bowl potted from buff clay has a slight irregular shape and an unusual depth for a tea bowl. Of Mino ware Oribe type, the chawan was entirely covered in a greyish-yellow glaze except the area around the base exposed, showing the mark on the foot ring cut by the potter's knife. The surface was decorated with autumn grasses and subtle green veins that suggest tendrils, painted with quick and confident strokes with iron and green underglaze. The interior of the bowl is glazed with some green color casually splashed and dripped over. The design calls to mind certain type Kyo-Yaki bowls by Ogata Kenzan, which could be the inspiration.
    There is a purposedly-built purple fabric form that goes into the tea bowl as a protection, but the original tomobako is now lost. From a US collection.
