The source of the name “KAZAFUNE” refers to the phase from a classic Chinese poem. The piece is made by using a hand-forming technique, which is the traditional style of Raku ware. This is a thin, shoe-shaped tea bowl. The whole body is unevenly covered with an ocher engobe. From the mouth to the low hip, the lustrous coated a green, a black glaze gently flowing creates an impressive scenery. Inside the trimmed foot of the piece, the ‘RAKU’ mark of Kichizaemon XV is impressed. This work is one of the “Night Voyage” series.
