Kiseto ware bowl

From Japan
Muromachi period, 16th century AD

Although this bowl must have been preserved as a teabowl for the Tea Ceremony, it was originally one of a set of five vessels for everyday use. It is an early form of Kiseto or ‘Yellow Seto' ware, made at Mino in the latter part of the sixteenth century. It developed from early attempts at imitating Chinese celadon. Another type was Setoguro, or 'Black Seto', one of a variety of newly fashionable developments of the old Seto traditions.
