Hideyuki Fujisawa’s Yuteki Tenmoku Tea Bowl is a whimsical use of traditional lacquer materials. This tea bowl was made by brushing pure layers of lacquer over a carved wooden surface. The form of the tea bowl was meant to mimic that of a thrown traditional tenmoku tea bowl, even taking into consideration the areas where the “glaze” pools around the base. Fujisawa strategically and meticulously placed Mother of Pearl around the surface of the piece, adding a touch of elegance and refinement to the tea bowl. The iridescent reflections of the Mother of Pearl dance with the light creating a rich cosmic atmosphere that can be held in the palm of your hand.
