Tokoname Chawan by Ezaki Issei
Here is a haunting Tokoname chawan-tea bowl by the legendary Ezaki Issei(1918-1992). If you’re not aware of Ezaki please search our archives for more on this ‘Phantom’ Living National Treasure. It’s haunting in the ash-glazing as well as being very shibui, maybe due to a different clay base or firing atmosphere. In perfect condition with a signed box, signed on base, 8.5cm.tallx14.
