Kohiki Yōhen Green Tea Cup by Wada Hiroaki
Kohiki is a type of high-fired stoneware characterized by a simple ash slip over an iron-rich body. It was first produced by Korean potters in Japan in the 1500s, and its simple, unadorned beauty was highly regarded among the busho chajin, or warrior tea men, who sometimes were rewarded for their loyalty with kohiki tea bowls.
Hiroaki Wada preserves the kohiki tradition with this lovely green tea cup. It was fired at Ōizumi-gama - the Wada family's wood burning climbing kiln - and possesses all the unrefined simplicity of the kohiki wares of old.
