This tsutsu-gata Aka-raku winter chawan (matcha bowl) features a brilliant red glaze with black spots. Its tall cylindrical shape, accented by bold cuts, helps keep the tea warm during the colder months. It features the undulating 'mountain path' (山道 - yamamichi) lip that many Raku bowls are known for.

Made by the Kiyomizu-based Heian Seiraku Kiln (平安清楽窯), this chawan ships in its original tomobako (wooden paulownia box).

One of Japan's most recognisable styles, Raku-yaki (楽焼) or Raku ware was developed by famous tea master Sen-no-Rikyu in the late 16th century. Perhaps inspired by the recently created 引き出し黒 (hikidashi-guro) technique used to produce the Seto-guro style of black chawan, Rikyu collaborated with tile-maker Chojiro to produce a new style of ware for use in the tea ceremony. Hand-formed from porous clay rather than wheel-thrown, Raku chawan are then coated in a lead glaze, fired at low temperatures, and removed from the kiln while still glowing hot. Most Raku chawan exist in two styles: Aka-raku (red raku), and Kuro-raku (black raku).
