Hagi Chawan (萩茶碗)
This is the Hagi ware crafted by OKADA, Yasushi (岡田泰).
The tea bowl has traditional loquat color in Hagi ware.
We call the pattern cherry blossoms "sakura" or fireflies by regarding them as the season, because mottled pink dots are seen.
The quality called "tsuchiaji" is soft, deep sense of touch like texture.
This type of tea bowl is very familiar in the tea ceremony.

OKADA majored in sculpture at the Tokyo Zokei University. He grow up in the traditional Hagi pottery, so it's natural to make Hagi ware.
