diameter: 4.92inch (12.5cm) height: 2.95inch (7.5cm), standard matcha bowl size
Traditional Kyo-Yaki (Kyoto Style)
Made by Yozan Ogawa
This Matcha Bowl is graceful and dignified. Combination of the paintings and the form brings an extremely sophisticated atmosphere.
The artist Yozan Ogawa has created a bold and heroic composition of the Camellia flower TSUBAKI. It is usually very difficult to finish such a bold and heroic composition elegantly. This composition is not only heroic but quite delicate.
Yozan Ogawa uses a very unique glazing technique which creates a stereoscopic effect. The stereoscopic effect of pigments adds depth to this Matcha Bowl. The pigments easily color nonhomogeneously and thus require much time and effort to apply the color homogeneously. So, most artisans hesitate to use it. The gold color is brought not by pigment but melted refined gold. The gold color of refined gold has an elegant glow with a resplendence quite different from pigment gold.
The form is unique. The middle side is a little swelled out. Though this form brings gracefulness, it is difficult to paint anything on this form in unison. This form is one of the traditions at Yozan Kiln. A part of this Matcha Bowl's name, TAMA means rotund or round in Japanese, and expresses this unique form. The base is a unique folding-fan shape. And there is a projection at the center of the base, which is created by a traditional technique called Tokin Kabuto. Height of this Matcha Bowl's projection is more than usual, which is proof of the highest grade Matcha Bowl. It is not easy to create such a high projection.
His works, which are all graceful and dignified, are visually captivating to viewers. Needless to say, Matcha served in this special bowl will profoundly enrich your heart.
