Object Name Bowl, Tea
Description This oil-fired chawan was made using the Hakeme technique. Hakeme consists of applying a white slip with a stiff brush in order to create the pattern on top half of this bowl. The slip covered the iron-rich clay, causing it to remain a gray instead of turning rust-colored through reduction.

This piece sits atop a raised footring and has a wide mouth, designed for use in the summer months. The top half has a white brushed pattern while the bottom half is a granite-color.The unglazed footring remains red.

Stamped maker's mark on the edge of the footring: "PR" with letters back to back so that they share a center line.

Custom box-lid contains a sketch of the bowl, underneath which it says "Hakeme". Along the side of the image is the artist's signature and a Japanese seal. The outside of the box has the potter's name writtin in Japanese.
