This Chawan was created by the studio Koyo. The bowl is made of rough Tokoname clay with high iron content, which can be fired at high temperatures. The coarse particles in the clay provide an inconspicuous grain in the glaze which emphasize the uniqueness of the Chawan.
Tokoname yaki is one of the six oldest kilns in Japan and has been producing a wide variety of pottery. Pottery has been produced since the Fujiwara, Kamakura and Muromachi periods, and is loved by enthusiasts all over Japan. Particular, the handmade flower vases and tea ceremony utensils, which are elegantly fired using the clay of the local area, have been approved as “Traditional Crafts” by the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry, and many masterpieces have been produced.
