Karatsu Ware Tea Bowl with Iron Painting | Japan, 18C


An Karatsu ware tea bowl covered with wood and straw ash mixed glaze showing a rich colour tone by the kiln modulation. It was probably fired in the Shiinomineyama kiln in the early 18th century. In the middle of the vessel’s wall, a landscape painting is drawn with a stylish brushstroke, and the hazy line pattern under the glaze creates depth in design.

There is a vivid trace of the potter’s fingers around the foot. The condition is extremely good, although there is some natural alteration during the kiln process. Comes in an old box.
