This is a very artistic tea bowl of Japanese Hagi Ware made by the famous potter, Seigan Yamane (1952 - ). . 3 color glazes (white, green, dark brown) are poured on the brown earthenware.

Hagi Ware is a type of Japanese pottery most identifiable for its humble forms and use of translucent white glaze. It originated in the early 17th century with the introduction of potters brought back from Korea.

Potters mix different types of local clay. The most standard result is a pink-orange color, called Korean clay. Wares are formed on the wheel and decorated with translucent glazes made of feldspar and ash. The seal of the potter is put on the bottom.
