UCHI-HAKEME CHAWAN (Dealer: Sezuan antiques & art) – Old pottery bowl with ‘hakeme’ brush marks at inner part called ‘Uchi-Hakeme’ (lit. ‘Inner brush-stroke’) in the Japanese tea term, as either old Korean folk bowl in Joseon dynasty (probably 17th century) or old Japanese tea ceremonoial bowl imitated original Korean folk bowl in Edo period (1603-1868).
Such deficient expression of wildly daubed white slip of hakeme is considered to be longing for the whiteness of noble porcelain, so that such taste of ‘wabi’ landscape was highly appreciated by Japanese ‘chajin’ (tea masters or connoisseurs) at that time and still today as well.
In practically fine antique condition, with some ‘kintsugi’ gold repairs for cracks and chip.
approx. D 19-18cm (7.48-7.08in), H 7.5-8.0cm (2.95-3.14in)
