This Kyo-yaki shiro tenmoku chawan (matcha bowl) features a clean white glaze, recalling the famed Shiro Tenmoku bowl of the Muromachi period. The rim is bound with a gold fukurin. Made by Mandai Kusayama (万代草山).

The term 'tenmoku' can refer to two things: the shape of a bowl, i.e. conical with a finger groove and flare at the lip; and a dark high-iron glaze that can produces various beautiful effects under the right firing conditions.

Both of these originated in Jian ware from Song dynasty China, where the dark colour of the glaze was praised for the way it contrasts nicely with the froth of whisked tea.

Kyo-yaki (京焼) is a type of Japanese pottery that traditionally comes from Kyoto, Japan. The pottery traditions of Kyoto date back to the 5th century and are varied in their styles.
