Karatsu Ware Bowl With Inlaid Striped Pattern “Mishima-Karatsu” | Japan,17C


An inlaid Ko-Karatsu bowl. It seems that it was baked in the Shiinomineyama kiln, but it has an atmosphere resembling the inlaid works of Takeo type.

A dark green ash glaze is applied on the annulus inlays reminiscent of Buncheong ware on the peninsula. It seems like a work by a Korean potter who relocated to Karatsu after the Japanese invasion of Korea (1592–1598). It is a style that strongly reflects the influence of Southern Korea, which can be said to be the mainstream of Ko-Karatsu after the fall of Kishidake castle.

The genuine shape and the handy size made as a daily vessel is still preferable for tea. The skin will grow more lustrer if using it. Two chips from the excavation were repaired by Kintsugi.
