Hand molded and sharply sculpted, this bowl is made from sandy white clay, which allowed Isezaki to experiment with a variety of textures. Walls polished to a smooth texture contrast with rough surfaces around the hip. Glazed and unglazed sections affect how the sounding light is reflected and moves across the body of the tea bowl. A protruding ledge is reminiscent of a rock formation. Together, the tea bowl represents a dynamic assortment of textures and colors crafted from a deceivingly simple material.
