Hiroshi Toyofuku Tea Bowl 1


Dimensions: H 7.5cm x W 14cm 

Materials: Hiyose clay

Method:  hand built, wood fired

Care: Can hold water. Dust lightly to clean.



Produced in Bizen with the local hiyose clay, this bowl possesses an earthy texture, expressive colours and eye-catching patterns. The wood-firing process lasts over a week and results in the unpredictable "patterns" of stripes, dots, and alternating colour fields, stunning testaments to the material's inherent beauty. Toyofuku’s piece is distinguished by a marbled, stratified surface; earthy umbers, greys and rich browns; and rustic, intricate textures.
