Red wabi-sabi raku footed bowl

Red wabi-sabi raku footed bowl $495

Elegant yellowish red raku footed bowl with interesting glaze drips that bring abstract ume (plum) blossoms to mind. With a wide profile and three tiny, delicate feet that hold the bowl gracefully above the table. The red lacquer repairs add dramatic color to the overall design. We believe this is from the Edo (1600-1868) era, but do not know much else about this rather unique and unusual piece, but its wabi-sabi beauty caught our eye. A box is included.

Condition: Fair. The red lacquer repairs seem delicate, so we do not recommend using this for food.

Size: 5.91 x 2.44 inches / 15 x 6.2 cm
