Japanese Woodfired Handmade Matcha Tea Bowl by Takahashi Rakusai IV

About

Traditional, hand-thrown tea bowl for matcha with ash glaze from wood firing. Takahashi Rakusai IV (1925) is one of Japan's grand masters of traditional pottery who specialized within his family business on Shigaraki ware. Shigaraki ware is sandy rough clay with many impurities, hard to handle, typically turning red during firing. The vessels are covered with wooden ash glaze that naturally occurs within the wood fired single-chamber kiln. The objects are usually fired for duration of at least four days. Each piece by him is unique and it took many years of endless efforts and experience to make these fantastic bowls. Takahashi Rakusai IV succeeded his father, Takahashi Rakusai III who was designated a “Intangible Cultural Property” by government in 1976 and passed the tradition subsequently to his son in 2010. Signed underneath. Comes with inscribed, signed and sealed, fitted wooden box. Measures: Ca. height 9 x diameter 14 cm.
