Available pieces

Three-foot ‘Autumn Mountain’ Western Raku Chawan by French Potter wAki

With the aim of consolidating my tea bowl collection and free up some space, I’m parting ways with this lovely western Raku chawan crafted by French potter wAki.

Its organic profile and the patterns formed by the cracks coming from the firing are very pleasing to the eye. The outside color of the bowl, reminiscent of cherry blossoms, confers a soft and gentle character to the piece, strengthened by the white colour covering the inside. Its rounded shape allows the bowl to fall naturally into the hands of the one holding it, making it very easy and comfortable to use. The most noticeable feature of this piece is still its three-foot kōdai, offering a beautiful balance and harmony to the bowl. Bearing the potter’s seal, located next to the foot.

– Condition: Excellent (A+)

– Measurements: 10.5 cm (width), 8.4 cm (height)

– Note: No tomobako

– Price: €120 + shipping

Izumo/Rakuzan Ido-style Chawan by Japanese Potter Nagaoka Sora (1898-1961), 10th generation Nagaoka Sumiemon 長岡住右衛門

With the aim of consolidating my tea bowl collection and free up some space, I’m parting ways with this lovely Izumo/Rakuzan chawan crafted by Japanese potter Nagaoka Sora.

The outside of the bowl reveals thin, elegant and discrete terracotta-colored stripes, beautifully contrasting with the light blueish-gray color of the glaze. A very subtle rokurome pattern can also be observed, typical of ido chawans’ spontaneous irregularities. The most prominent feature of this piece is undoubtedly its tall wari-kōdai (type of kōdai split with one to three or four cuts), somewhat reminiscent of kureki bowls (chawans inspired by wooden bowls used for eating and drinking in Zen temples), which gives a strong but humble presence to the piece. Bearing the potter’s seal, located next to the foot.

– Condition: Excellent (A+)

– Measurements: 12.8 cm (width), 9.1 cm (height), 256 g (weight)

– Note: No tomobako

Autumnal Shino Chawan by Spanish Potter Encarna Soler
