Fujina Ware Tea Bowl | Japan, 19C¥12,000 JPY
A bowl with a beautiful flowing green-brown glaze. The glazing and vessel shape are reminiscent of the “Irabo Chawan” on the Korean Peninsula (ordered from Japan), but there is no spiral nail carving on the inside foot and made in later years. Since it came from an old house in Sanin, it is inferred that is Fujina ware.
Fujina ware, which is a pottery from Tamayu-cho, Matsue City, Shimane Prefecture, was opened in the middle of the Edo period as a kiln for the Matsue Domain. In the latter half of the Edo period, private kilns were opened one after another under the influence of Matsudaira Fumai, a lord of the Domain and a representative tea master. This bowl is probably made around Bakumatsu (last days of Tokugawa shogunate) to early Meiji period.
It is said that the Sanin region and the Korean Peninsula, which are located on the opposite banks of the Sea of Japan, have been deeply related since ancient times. It can be felt a causality that this bowl, which looks like a combination of Korean “Irabo Chawan” and Japanese “Kiseto Chawan”, came out from the warehouse in Sanin region.
