Chawan tea cup

Chawan tea cup


This is anagama fired teabowl, chawan. Chawan bowls are nothing like symmetrical Western bowls: they are often asymmetrical, and sometimes even “veiled” with an upper lip in motion. We can rotate them, discovering that each side expresses something different. More an object of contemplation than a utilitarian container, a chawan, dedicated to the tea ceremony in Japan, must be in keeping with the season and the practitioner’s feelings. This is why there exist many styles, shapes and aesthetic aspects. Anagama wood kiln firing provides these bowls with a superb and rare patina that gives them their unique character. Thrown on the wheel, wood fired in Karmazinu Anagama for 114 hours. Features a dramatic array of colors and textures. Excellent sample of anagama reduction effects that creates rugged surface.
H 8 cm
W 10.5 cm
This piece is thrown on the wheel stoneware, high fired to vitrification at 1300°C centigrade to eliminate porosity, thus allowing the pieces to be used in the oven, freezer and dishwasher but nevertheless can break from mishandle.
