Kuro raku chawan, inspired by Chojiro's oguro chawan

Raku ware was founded by Chojiro but flourished under the guidance of the great tea master Sen no Rikyu. This strikingly simple chawan is modelled on one which was created by Chojiro in response to a request from Rikyu for a tea bowl free from intentional decorative features.
This is minimalism taken to the extreme, creation stripped down to its very essence, resulting in a humble piece devoid of luxury or ornament but imbued with a sense of deep spirituality.
