Description

Kyoto native Ikai Yūichi has trained under the late Shimizu Uichi (1926-2004) who, in 1985, was awarded the title of Living National Treasure for his outstanding work in ceramic making.  And it is from his sensei that Ikai learned the secrets to coaxing subtle hues and fluid effects from the oldest and most rudimentary of all glazes - hai, or ash.

This striking tea ceremony bowl is glazed in red pine and straw ash.  It came from the kiln enrobed in a verdant green (ryokusai) tone.  The artist accents the bowl with real gold and applied with a straw brush in quick, energetic strokes - a technique called hakémé.  A rare addition to any chawan collection.
