Shirahana Chawan (Tea Bowl)

Hitoshi Morimoto’s unglazed Shirahana series is made using the same clay from local rice paddies used to produce the Bizen ware that is the dominant style of the region in Okayama where he lives and works. To achieve a neutral tone he fires the works in a kerosene kiln rather than the wood fired noborigama used to fire his bizen work.

Each bowl comes with a signed kiri wood box (Tomobako) for storage.

Hitoshi Morimoto was born into a kiln owning family in Okayama Prefecture. After graduating from Tokyo Zokei University, he apprenticed in Mino City after which he returned to the family kiln in Okayama where he currently produces ceramic tableware and vessels for tea ceremony and ikebana. While the majority of Morimoto's ceramics are unglazed Bizen Ware, he also produces work in other styles.
