Japanese Matcha Bowl - Tenmoku Glazed Mino-yaki Chawan - 500ml
This Mino-yaki wan-nari chawan (matcha bowl) features a stunning, deep prussian blue yuteki (oil spot) tenmoku glaze.
Originating in Jian ware from Song dynasty China, this style of high-iron glazing was originally praised for its dark colour which contrasts nicely with the froth of whisked tea. In Japan, these bowls became known as Tenmoku, named after a mountain in China. While most Tenmoku glazes are a simple black, occasionally the conditions in the kiln are just right, producing beautiful effects, such as the one seen on this cup, which is called Yuteki, or 'oil spot'.
Mino-yaki (美濃焼,) is a type of Japanese pottery produced in Mino Province in Gifu Prefecture, Japan. Since the introduction of mass production in the Meiji period (1868–1912), Mino ware accounts for around 50% of Japanese pottery produced today.
