This wood-fired tea bowl has a slightly curved lip and bamboo-style foot, with a variety of “wet-to-dry” surfaces that undulate from rough to glossy, with a chattered texture. Prominent throw-lines duck in and out from under ash, tracing the potter’s fingers across the skin of this vessel. The “Komogai” form originated from Korea, and was infused into Japanese ceramic practices around the Momoyama period. This one features a swirl in the well, and a small “harvest moon” mark from the firing. Comfortably holds 90ml, though we recommend topping off at 60ml to prove to yourself that you’re good enough for a second steep. 5.8 x 8 x 8cm.
