Joseon Dynasty Busan Ware Komogai Shaped Teabowl


A Busan ware teabowl fired in the middle of the Joseon dynasty. It has a shape called Komogai-Nari that features a curved lip, a circular dent on the well, and a plump body. It is presumed to be made in the Wakan (Waegwan) kiln run by the Tsushima feudal clan in Busan. This is a high-quality work with a smooth glaze and moderate weight. The fully glazed Komogai Chawan is recorded as Nochi-Komogai (Later Komogai) in the essential tea wares catalogue in the Edo period, 古今和漢諸道具見知鈔 (Kokin Wakan Shodogu Kenchisho) published in 1694. The bluish dripping glaze on the exterior creates a gentle contrast with the loquat-coloured skin.

There are several hairlines, but they are old and stylized. The chips on the footring were made by the production process, and there is no rattling. It comes with a box.
