This tea bowl (Chawan) is one of Chee Yong's oxidation-fired Tenmoku Series. Tenmoku tea bowls are particularly highly valued for tea ceremonies for their fortuitousness surrounding tenmoku pottery. The emphasis is on the ceramic glaze, where a number of distinct effects can be produced, some including an element of randomness that gives it such curious appeal. In this, the subtle tinge of orangy-brown hues have occurred, nice to go with the green matcha!

A light Chawan for the Spring time!

Note: Tenmoku takes its name from the Tianmu Mountain (天目 Mandarin: tiān mù; Japanese: ten moku; English: Heaven's Eye) temple in China where iron-glazed bowls were used for tea. It is a type of Japanese pottery and porcelain that originates in imitating Chinese stoneware Jian ware (建盏) of the southern Song dynasty (1127–1279). Tenmokus are known for their variability. During their heating and cooling, several factors influence the formation of iron crystals (oil spots or hare fur) within the glaze.
