It is a work that expresses the Raku tea bowl with the clay of Karatsu. After molding on the potter's wheel, the shape is adjusted by hand forming. The hill is also a hill. By firing in a wood-fired kiln, the ash is covered moderately, creating an elegant scenery. The handle is just the right size to fit in your hand, and the proportions are slightly elongated, so I think you can enjoy thinly made on large clothes slowly.
