Karatsu Ware E-Karatsu Style Teabowl with Kawakujira Design


A Kogaratsu teabowl fired in a Takeo-type kiln from the Azuchi-Momoyama to early Edo periods. The underglaze iron lip design called Kawakujira, the dripping-like black on the interior and the letter “V” line placed underneath gives a stylish impression. The shape is distorted in a wavy manner, and drip glaze makes the scenery interior and exterior. It is a masterpiece teabowl you can hear the potter’s breathing from the powerful work that leaves dynamic spatula marks.

This piece is formerly owned by Yukihiko Yasuda, a Japanese painter from the Taisho to Showa periods who is regarded as one of the founders of the Japanese painting technique of Nihonga. There are no noticeable flaws other than a few old hairlines. It fits in a box with an autograph by Yukihiko Yasuda, and a drawstring pouch comes together.
