Shinsha Chawan (辰砂茶碗)
This is the Karatsu ware crafted by YASUNAGA, Raizan (安永頼山).
He made the shape by throwing the potter's wheel.
The master of the ceremony invites guests and serves Japanese traditional tea called maccha.
Shinsha glaze turns to be red when it is taken through reduction firing.
We see divided colors at the middle of the bowl.

The Chinzei kiln of Karatsu ware pottery was set up by carving out a bamboo grove. He makes something that strongly reflects the Ko-garatsu style.
