When held in both hands, the curved line of the bowl fits comfortably in the hand, giving it a warm feeling.
The patterns created by the white glaze, a characteristic of Hagiyaki pottery, are beautiful.
Eizou Miwa was born in Hagi, Yamaguchi Prefecture, the second son of Living National Treasure Miwa Kyusetsu (Jusetsu) XI,
In 1982, he became a full member of the Japan Craftsmen’s Association (JCCA), and was highly regarded for his popularity and ability, until his death in 1999 at the young age of 53.
The Miwa Kiln is one of the former Hagi domain’s official kilns and is said to be one of the most prestigious Hagi-ware kilns,
famous for the white glaze called “Kyusetsu White,” which was developed by the 11th generation Kyusetsu from the straw ash glaze developed by the 10th generation Kyusetsu.
Even today, the kiln continues to keep its fire burning and the Hagiyaki technique alive.
Eizou Miwa’s tea bowls are sold at the Jikoh store. Please take a look.
