    Teabowl with hakeme

    From Japan
    Edo period, 17th -18th century AD

    Such eccentrically shaped teabowls became popular around the end of the sixteenth century, when the Japanese Tea Ceremony had become widely influenced by the lavish fashions of the growing urban society.

    The bowl is also striking because of the hakeme, or brushed marks, resulting from the brushed application of the glaze mixture, after the original Korean technique.
