This Celadon and Lacquer Tea Bowl is one of the signature pieces exhibiting his celadon and lacquer technique. The glaze on this form is thick and consistent. The form, a simple cylinder, contains a subtle push - squashing the lip of the form ever so slightly ro create an altered shape, one so light that the viewer does not realize it until they are holding the tea bowl in their hands. The foot of the bowl is small and centered. The artist uses a knife to carve out the excess porcelain, leaving a buttery, ripple of clay that hardens and keeps the record of the artist’s hand.
