Yasushi Fujihira’s Tea Bowl is one of his signature pieces. With the bright gold liner radiating inside the tea bowl, the piece gives off an ethereal feeling. The painted gold interior seems to vibrate in its brilliance and the rough and darker outside surface treatment, further elevates the luxurious qualities of the glaze inside. This piece seems to glow without the need of light. Held inside the palm of the hands, the tea bowl feels like a precious stone or a glowing star.
