The source of the name “MIZU TENJO YORI KITARU” refers to the phase from a classical Chinese poem. The piece is made by using a hand-forming technique and sculptural process of trimming, which is the traditional style of Raku ware. This is a thin, shoe-shaped tea bowl. The notched lip is rightly warped like mountain roads and partially trimmed with a spatula. An ash glaze coating the body is quite gentle and the area from the mouth to the low hip is covered with a cobalt glaze in a belt shape at an angle. The glaze scenery looks as if the Yellow river lasted throughout beyond the sky. This work is one of the “Day Voyage” series.
