Black Raku Tea
the time of Japan's most famous tea master, Sen
Rikyu (1522-1591), raku ware has been the favored teaware
of wabi-cha - the rustic, Zen-influenced tea ceremony of Japan.
Raku pottery is rapidly fired and then removed from the kiln
while still glowing hot to cool. The result is the unique glossy black
tea bowl that has been at the center of chanoyu for centuries.
DIAMETER: 4½ inches
Each raku bowl is made by hand (not made in a mold or turned
on a wheel) and is an individual work of art.
Presented in wooden box with papers.

wheel - its rough clay body contrasting with its smooth, white glaze.
