Red raku tea bowl, low cylinder type (hantsutsugata) with irregular lip. Formed by coiling (himozukuri). An ash-based glaze has been applied over an iron red glaze containing stone dust. The red glaze is most noticeable around the lip, as the ash-based glaze dripped down from the lip forming a cloudy ring around the upper part of the bowl and whitish patterns below. Some specks of red iron oxide show through the white glaze, producing an eye-catching effect. The chawan (tea bowl) is completely glazed. There are three stilt marks on the bottom of the foot ring (kodai) and conspicuous tong marks on the walls of the bowl. Suitable for summer and winter temae, preferably for "thin" tea (usucha). I recommend this tea bowl - and the bowls of the same glaze type - for yobanashi chaji and asa chaji. This tea bowl bears the poetic name (mei) "Pearl of Flames".
