In the late 16th century, after a military invasion of Korea, potters brought from the peninsula established a ceramics style known as Hagi-yaki. Characterised by warm toned clays, shaped into humble forms and finished with milky feldspar and ash glazes, Hagi-yaki earned an appreciation as the second most valued style after Raku-yaki. As the saying goes, 'Raku first, Hagi second and Karatsu third.'
Chawan Aki is a vintage bowl with the soft tones of autumn, Aki, presented in its original cedar-wood kiri-bako presentation box.

CARING FOR YOUR TEA WARE : All craft-made ceramic and porcelain tea ware should be treated with more care than you would your daily dinnerware, which can stand the abuse of dishwashers and aggressive detergents. Make it a habit to rinse with fresh water and dry your tea ware immediately after use. Avoid letting tea remain in your cups or bowls for extended periods as more porous glazes and even porcelain will allow stains to develop. Our Samadoyo pieces are made from tough borosilicate glass and will stand being cleaned in the dishwasher.
