Karatsu Ware Muji-Karatsu Style Teabowl


A Kogaratsu teabowl fired in a Matsuura-type kiln around 1600. The ash glaze is applied until the foot and has a splendid loquat colour on the body. Also, a rough “Kairagi glaze (shrunk glaze)” is formed from the waist down and is regarded as a particular highlight.

The “Kirikodai (notched foot)”, which is a part of the foot cut off with a spatula, is a design that can be seen in the Korai-Chawan (Japanese-ordered Korean teabowls) of the same period, but its origin is not clear. Furimono (kiln grits), like a smouldering fire, glow the interior and creates magnificent scenery. A stunning teabowl with many highlights.

Some part is dull in colour due to unstable firing during the kiln process. A hairline and three chips have been carefully repaired with Kintsugi. It comes with a Shifuku (drawstring pouch) and a box.
