This dojimari-gata (waisted-shape) Oribe-yaki chawan (matcha bowl) features geometric patterns painted in an iron underglaze, accented a patch of copper green glaze.
Oribe-yaki (織部焼) is a type of Japanese pottery known for its free flowing glazes and asymmetrical, hand-formed shape. Dating from the 16th century, Oribe ware exists in many styles.
One of the most famous is Ao-Oribe or Green Oribe, which is often decorated with geometric patterns painted with an iron glaze and then partially covered in a vibrant green copper-sulfate glaze which contrasts against the white background.
The 100-Prong chasen (百本立茶筅) and matching chashaku are made with dark kurotake bamboo.
