Tea bowl, Ichinyu-Raku IV, 1600 - 1699

d 13.0cm × h 8.5cm. More details

Most Raku ware is glazed in a single colour. The pleasure of these bowls lies in unforeseen details and in the tactile quality of their thick, irregular glaze. Some bowls have contrasting decorations (where the dark glaze was scraped off). Here, for instance, the ornament takes the form of flaming pearls, a symbol of wisdom and insight.
