Why this is a
Masterpiece

The form, colour and the very simple but bold decoration make this bowl a fine example of raku pottery. It is signed and dated.

History of the Object
This bowl belongs to the aka-raku (red raku) type ware. It bears an inscription and is dated on the body. The decoration on the body of the bowl, executed with a few brush strokes, is a bundle and a fan, symbols of Hotei, one of the Seven Gods of Good Luck. Raku ware is a low-fired pottery formed by hand. Raku bowls were specifically created for tea ceremonies. They were first produced by the Raku family in Kyóto in the late 16th century.
