Hagi Ware Tea Bowl with Faceting Design | Japan, 18C


A Hagi ware tea bowl baked in the middle to late Edo period. The feldspar glaze mixed with earth and ash glaze are applied on Daido clay (Hagi’s especial clay distinctive feature of low-iron contain). And the deep bowl shape and long foot show a profound impression.

The characteristic Sugi-gata (cedar tree-like shape), which is commonly called the Tojin-bue, means Chinese flute, is probably an arrangement of Korean Goki type tea bowls. The faceting design on the wall which is reminiscent of a steep cliff, a kind of rigor impression to the Hagi’s particular subdued taste.

The loquat-colored spots that spread thinly from countless pinholes are absolutely beautiful. There are some Kintsugi repairs, but the condition is generally good. Comes with a box.
