Chawan or tea bowls hold a special place in the world of Japanese ceramics. Representing more than just a simple vessel for serving green tea, chawan are a challenge to Japanese potters to present their best work. Each of Morimoto’s tea bowls were fired in the family’s wood-burning noborigama kiln resulting in distinctive surface effects. 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, Morimoto apprenticed in Mino City after which he returned to the family kiln in Okayama where he currently produces his work. While the majority of Morimoto's ceramics are made in the style of his region, Bizen ware, he also produces some ceramic work in other styles.
