This chawan pulses with energy and spring emotion. Vivid slashes of red, gold and tea green punctuate a background that features light green bands of wash that have been applied with a delicate hand above and below a middle band of ivory.
Splashes of gold fleck tie the design all together to give this tea bowl a very gay and spirited feeling. The ivory color in side of the bowl is the perfect foil for the vivid green of Matcha. The mark of the potter is clearly impressed on the base of the bowl.
While classically a ‘summer bowl’ in shape, this chawan can, of course, be used year round if you love its wonderful shape and glazing. Its appearance is quite lovely when there is green matcha and froth inside the bowl.
This is a handmade item – slight variations in the painting, colors, tooling, patterning and kiln effects of Chinese and Japanese tea wares are to be expected. We have carefully photographed this item as best as possible – please be aware that different device screens can render colors and subtle tones slightly differently.
