Description

This ash glazed (haiyū) tea ceremony bowl by Wada Tōzan was fired around the ash pit of Ōizumi-gama - the Wada family's noborigama climbing kiln.  At 1,250°C (2,300°F) degrees, it was blasted with wave after wave of red pine and cedar embers, each one adding another layer of texture and color.  What finally arose from the ashes is a true masterpiece, blessed with incidental details which could never be reproduced in subsequent firings.

The face of the bowl (shōmen) is a fluid collage of amber yōhen (kiln changes) rivulets and ocher speckles. The tea pool inside is encrusted with pine embers now frozen in time, and the entire piece exudes a raw energy that naturally draws viewers in closer to ponder the dynamics of its creation.
