Sawankhalok Ware Tea Bowl with Iron Painting | Thailand, 15-16C


A bowl made in the Sawankhalok at the end of the Sukhothai dynasty. The technique of applying iron painting on engobe was introduced from the Cizhou ware in North China. The Thai iron glaze made from paddy mud and wood ash was easy to bleed, and drip, but that produce a rather wabi-sabi taste.

An excavated inherited piece that has been used for many years in the tea ceremony. There are no notable defects other than the kiln scratches and a few repairs on the rim. Comes with a storage box.
