Another exceptional Chawan, made by Master Katsushi using Tenmoku shape. This Matcha bowl is made of Tokoname clay, which can be fired at high temperatures thanks to its enormous iron content. Master Katsushi was inspired by falling snowflakes for the pattern of the glaze. The use of patterns and repeating symbols is one of Master Katsushi’s trademarks.
Career of Master Katsushi
Master Katsushi was born in Tokoname. He was practically born into the potter’s trade. Nevertheless, he chose to train ceramics in Seto rather than Tokoname. He spent his journeyman years in Kyoto before establishing his own ceramic kiln in Tokoname in 1992 and finally receiving his master’s diploma in 2013. Master Katsushi’s work has won him numerous prizes at the Chozo Prize Ceramics Exhibition, so it’s no surprise that many of his ceramics have found their way to Aoyama Square for Traditional Craft in Tokyo.
