YAMA-CHAWAN(mountain tea bowls)

YAMA-CHAWAN is an old unglazed wood-fired shallow bowl that was often found in a mountainous area. They emerged in the end of Heian era(794-1185) and disappeared in Muromachi era(15 century). Those unglazed ware were not as popular as ash-glazed ware which contributed to SETO areas to grow as a prospering ceramic producing region. In Heian and Muromachi era people used wooden bowls as daily tableware. The ceramic wares were supposed to be used as some ritual vessels or bowl-type lamps(to put some oil with a wick).


 

As Osamu Inayoshi(b.1976-) had a good amount of collection of YAMA-CHAWAN in ATSUMI, we asked him to hold an exhibition of his work in YAMA-CHAWAN style. Kazunori Fukaya is Inayoshi’s friend who investigates and restores old SANAGE pottery for public investigating committee. We are very pleased to have an opportunity to introduce their old-fashioned work with contemporary feeling.

 

 


Twenty bowls merged! Failure pieces.
The bowls were stacked in tall piles for firing—during which a natural ash glaze was formed—and occasionally fused together in the kiln as here.
