This Tokoname-yaki chawan (matcha bowl) is thrown in the classic half-cylindrical (hantsutsu-gata) shape and is coated with a glossy jet black glaze. In wabi fashion, the shape is organic and irregular with a subtly undulating lip.

Made by Nagayanagi Kousei (永柳光生) a Tokoname potter who creates both sculptural pieces and functional wares.

Tokoname-yaki (常滑焼) is a type of Japanese pottery that traditionally comes from Tokoname in Aichi Prefecture, Japan. The site of one of Japan’s Six Ancient Kilns, pottery has been made in Tokoname since the 12th century.

Today, Tokoname ware is known for its iconic brick-red clay called shudei. Famously used in teaware and bonsai pots, this clay’s vibrant colour comes from its rich iron content. Tea steeped in unglazed Tokoname teapots is said to have a mellower taste.
