Kintsugi Takatori Green Bowl


Unusually the original bowl was made by the current Takatori family head's mother, which may explain why it is this rich green colour. Traditionally Takatori ware was not green, maybe being a female gave her extra room for experimentation.

The delicate tracery of the 22k gold kintsugi work contrasts beautifully with both the white warabai glaze and the dark, mysterious wash pool of green glaze.
