The Classic Jian tea bowl (temmoku) must be one of the most perfect fusions of glaze, form and body in the history of Chinese ceramics. If not the main inspiration for Korean and Japanese pottery.
This rare example is from the late Tang dynasty (618-907) to early Song (906-1279). Will see what it might do to the tea character....
