Vintage Hakeme Chawan
"Hakeme Chawan" means a tea bowl with brush marks. For more than two centuries from the mid-sixteenth to the mid-eighteenth century, one particular item dominated the fashion of wabicha, a form of tea ceremony, in Japan: tea bowls obtained from Korea, commonly called Kōrai Chawan (高麗茶碗) or Korean tea bowls. Korean tea bowls held the key to the evolving aesthetic of wabicha, which was highly refined by Sen no Rikyū (1522-1591) and inherited by other eminent tea masters in Tokugawa Japan.
