Kizeamon Ido Chawan.... Impermanence.

flux, but it is as truthful as I can feel....

A Joseon (1392 - 1910) Lee Dynasty edo style? tea bowl.

Enjoy a moment of birth and rebirth from this vessel.

I've been waiting for you to post these photos! You captured the glaze beautifully. It must feel wonderful to handle.

I am gonna bring it over soon to warm up your hands.

Cheers and take care. T

This bowl exhibits the shape and colour characteristics of a beautiful Jung Ho (Edo or Ido) chawan. The foot of this bowl is so interesting, wild, natural, and free. Although it deviates slightly from the typical flowering white glazed look, it is quite stunning in its own way. It is quite common for older bowls to have such a foot.

Again, thanks for sharing.

Gorgeous, T. Are there particular teas you like to drink from these? I bet that whatever you were in the mood for would be lovely from these cups.
