THis one is a bit of a spur of the moment purchase. I was falling asleep and I happened upon it and just thought it would be lovely to drink tea out of, I put my phone down and tried to sleep but after an hour of thinking about it I bought it. I initially thought Bizen-Yaki, but after recieving it today I am wondering if perhaps it is Shigaraki. It seems to have been well used and cared for. It may not be originally intended for a Chawan but it really is perfect for that, I just absolutely love the rustic feeling of it.
Hoping someone might solve the mystery of the inscription on the tomobako for me, and maybe someone has some insights on the bowl itself.
