That's why I bought it in the first place.

Chawan first appeared in China at a temple in the Tianmu mountains (Tenmoku in Japanese) where they were used to drink tea. These were shaped like this one and the glaze was usually a dark brown iron containing glaze but not always. Of course we in the West use the term, tenmoku, to describe the glaze and not the shape, which isn't strictly correct.

In the 13th century, the forebear of this Kato family of potters, Fujino Shirobe, went to China to study pottery and came back with the techniques and glazes used in this example of Seto pottery.

Had a discussion with a potter who just makes functional wares and he was horrified by crawled shino like that on Pat Southwood's tea cup below and drips on Kazem's yunomi. Some people just don't appreciate the skill needed to do such things on purpose.

I think your functional potter's view would be shared by the vast majority of true teabowl connoisseurs.

Also I'm not saying that thought and skill do not play a part in what Pat and Kazem have done but much of it is down to luck. There will be other bowls that haven't turn out how they wished but that is why they and others like them do it this way. Not to get dozens of bowls looking all the same but getting the odd one or two that are "lucky accidents" that they like and have worked very hard to achieve.

My latest D. Michael Coffee. Very more-ish, but you have to get them in the right light to appreciate the glaze colours.

Another by Steve Booton; fresh from the kiln. He's trying something different: cobalt brush strokes under a greyish shino glaze.

Most are 3.5"-4" - shorter than a mug. Maybe it's just the way I'm holding them makes them look big?
The largest is Hollis's one, but that's a big chawan rather than a Tea Bowl

Victor Harris of ErinStudioCeramics chawan

Photos don't do it justice. Multilayered swags of glaze make it looks like fields of poppies.

It is very unusual for a female to take over an important kiln in this way. I believe that her son works there these days. I'll leave you to guess what his artist name is.

From the size of it when compared to "that hand" it is a teabowl (chawan) rather than a yunomi. A more open chawan would be for summer use and this upright type (tsu tsu) would be for use in the winter.

Most of these are, as despite any aesthetic value that they have, they would not be allowed to be used in a real tea ceremony, which is the purpose of an authentic chawan.

That's not to be critical of any of these, as in the West the majority are bought for their decorative value and not for use.

I have you all to blame for my sudden crash course into the world of Tea bowls Laughter I was at an auction earlier to bid on some arts and crafts items and got sucked into the studio section of the sale. I had made the mistake of reading far more of this website than is healthy, including this thread. No one seemed to be bidding on the studio pottery and it seemed rude to leave them. So once I have worked out what I have I may post some pictures. But at a rough guess I would say I have between 30-40 tea bowls alongside another 60-70 other bits of good signed studio. (should keep me busy)
