Kintsugi Teabowl | Hagi ware

SKU: 1899

Hagi ware was first produced by potters abducted from Korea during the Japanese invasions of the peninsula in the 1590s. A simple transparent glaze was employed, allowing the potters to focus on the clay’s texture, color, lightness, and interaction between glaze and fire. The outstanding artistic feature of this bowl is the refined mending. - On mended ceramics, see: Flickwerk.
