About the Bowl
A Takatori ware teacup by Japanese potter Onimaru Setsuzan (1912-1996). An example of Setsuzan’s tea ceremony stoneware resides in the collection of the Brooklyn Museum.
The kilns from which this colorful ceramic originated can be traced back 400 years, to a potter brought to Japan from the Korean Peninsula by a samurai returning from war. Takatori ware has since been one of the ceramic types favored by masters of the tea ceremony.
The delicate, restoring and poetic sharing of tea remains one of the few major emblems of everyday life in Japan. Central to the tea ceremony is the choice of colors and shapes of tea bowls and other implements used in the ceremony. The master of ceremony must show mastery of the environment and the aesthetic of the chosen ceramics—and if properly done, elevates to the level of art.
