Vtg Japanese Green Tea Bowl Pottery Chawan for Tea Ceremony
Details: This is a vintage Japanese Kiseto or Kizeto green tea bowl or Chawan from Japan. Kizeto emerged from the tawny brown Koseto (old seto) style of the Muromachi period, and unlike lacquerware that had its beginnings in the Momoyama period, the Kizeto of the Momoyama period was especially beautiful with a captivating charm; since antiquity masters of the tea ceremony valued both "Aburagete" and "Ayamete" for their high quality, matte appearance, and grainy texture. Although most were originally made for Mukozuke (one of the side dishes) and treated as tea bowls, there do exist some that were made to be tea bowls. For Kizeto, when the clay is half-dried lines are drawn on with a twig or piece of bamboo, and the side is struck with copper chalcanthite. Copper chalcanthite turns green when baked via oxidation, a special trait of Kizeto that pairs well with scorch marks. Japanese green tea bowls are very popular in Japan and they are used at the tea ceremony. Pick up this wonderful chawan today to have a little piece of Japan in your home or office.
