This Japanese stoneware chawan with its marbled brown glaze was handcrafted in Kyoto by a master potter.
Its glaze is very shiny. This is a “Tabi” bowl: its smaller size makes it ideal for traveling.
The potter’s signature is engraved on the underside of the bowl.
Its foot is kaijiri-kodai: a shell-shaped spiral is visible under the foot, but also at the bottom of the bowl.
Accidentally broken, I restored it using traditional Japanese lacquer, called Urushi, and 24-carat gold.
You can reuse this bowl to drink your favorite tea, or simply keep it as an object to admire.
Measuring 10 cm in diameter and 5 cm in height, it is twice as unique.
