<About the Original Vessel>
Shino ware is a type of pottery with a feldspar glaze produced in Mino Distinct during the Momoyama period (1573-1600), and has been produced in cauldrons since around the end of the 16th century, with many vessels associated with the tea ceremony. Some of them are designated as national treasures in Japan, and are so valuable pieces. We collected this broken tea bowl, where had fallen at an antique ceramic store while on display.
