Horimishima type is a style of Korean tea bowl with a design of woven wood fence pattern which is carved and inlaid with white clay. The bowls are said to have been made to orders from Japan. This work also features a flower design on both the inside and outside. From the flower decoration on the outside, which is rather rare, this kind of Horimishima tea bowl is known as “sotobana” (outside flower) style.
