Kyoyaki Tenmoku-glazed teacup B

This is a tenmoku glaze tea cup from Sekiun Kiln.

This tea cup has a tenmoku glaze that shines in green, blue, and purple depending on the angle of the light. The ingredients in the black glaze, which contain a lot of iron, flow down during firing, creating a beautiful grain pattern.

The famous tenmoku glaze tea bowls were made in the Jian kilns and Cizhou kilns during the Song Dynasty (960-1279) in China. Many tea bowls with black glaze were produced for matcha, which was popular in China at the time, and among these, Tenmoku tea bowls were rare. The name Tenmoku comes from the fact that the tea bowl used by Japanese Zen monks who studied abroad on Mt. Tenmoku in China was called "Tenmoku Chawan."

This tea cup is made using a potter's wheel to scrape the surface and shape it. The scratch marks on the bottom are beautiful. Only the bottom is unglazed, and the feel of the clay feels good in your hand.

The pattern of the Tenmoku cannot be controlled, and no two vessels are alike. This is a gem of a tea cup where you can enjoy the randomness of ceramics.
