Madara Tea Ceremony Bowl by Wada Hiroaki
Wada Hiroaki is the fourth generation of ceramic artists at Kotoura Kiln. He has trained for years under his father, Wada Tozan, learning how to shift his creative energy between the precise and sophisticated world of Kyoto porcelain and the raw, unrefined world of wood-fired pottery. He has proven himself, like his mentor, to be equally adept at both.
This intriguing tea ceremony bowl lies somewhere between the two genres. It was fired at Ōizumi-gama - the Wada family's noborigama climbing kiln. Its madara (lit. "mottled" in Japanese) ash glaze came from the kiln enrobed in a creamy softness with incidental streams of amber and flecks of iron. Deftly formed and perfectly balanced, the bowl strikes an organic harmony with whipped matcha green tea.
A wooden presentation box will be custom made to order and signed by the artist. Delivery time for this item is 2 weeks.
A fukusa display cloth is included.
