Hagi Chawan (萩茶碗)
This is the Hagi ware crafted by OKADA, Yasushi (岡田泰).
He combined the white glaze with the ashes glaze containing less iron and that has become a shade of white.
The quality called "tsuchiaji" is soft, deep sense of touch like texture.
This type of tea bowl is very familiar in the tea ceremony.
Height : 6.7 cm
Width : 14.5 cm
OKADA was majoring in sculpture at Tokyo Zokei University. The soft and peaceful color occured from glaze attracts us thoroughly.
