This Karatsu-yaki chawan (matcha bowl) features a crazed warm-grey glaze with subtle iron spotting, decorated with iron underglaze paintings of grass in the e-Karatsu style.

E-karatsu (絵唐津 - painted Karatsu) chawan employ an iron underglaze to paint simple decorations, which is then covered in a transparent or semi-transparent ash glazed. This style has a rustic elegance, with the transparent glaze showing off the rich, earthy tones of Karatsu’s clay.

This chawan was made by Tōya Inoue (井上東也) of Kyōzan Kiln (鏡山窯) and comes in its original kiribako (桐箱 - wooden paulownia box). Since Inoue-san founded Kyōzan Kiln in 1969, they have continued to produce various traditional Karatsu styles in their wood-fired kiln.

Karatsu-yaki (唐津焼) is a type of Japanese pottery that traditionally comes from Karatsu, Saga Prefecture, Japan. This area has been a centre of pottery production since the 16th century. Karatsu ware is known for its sturdiness and simplicity and is one of the favourites of the tea ceremony, along with Raku ware and Hagi ware. Karatsu ware is produced in a variety of styles such as E-Karatsu (絵唐津) in which dark iron-based underglaze is used to paint plants, animals, and other images.
