Faceted Bizen Chawan (Tea Bowl)

Chawan or tea bowls hold a special place in the world of Japanese ceramics. Representing more than just a simple vessel for serving green tea, chawan are a challenge to Japanese potters to present their best work. Each of Morimoto’s tea bowls were fired in the family’s wood-burning noborigama kiln resulting in distinctive surface effects. Each bowl comes with a signed kiri wood box (Tomobako) for storage.

Hitoshi Morimoto
Hitoshi Morimoto was born into a kiln owning family in Okayama Prefecture. After graduating from Tokyo Zokei University, he apprenticed in Mino City before returning to the family kiln in Okayama where he currently produces ceramic tableware and vessels for tea ceremony and ikebana. While the majority of Morimoto's ceramics are unglazed Bizen Ware, wood fired in a noborigama, he also produces work in other styles using a variety of glazes.
