This is a Kumidashi Wan made by Mr. Minoru Hara who has a kiln in Sumiyama, Uji City, Kyoto Prefecture. It is a little larger than a Sencha-wan tea bowl and has a wider mouth than a teacup. It is used to serve Kousencha or Sakura-yu during the waiting time or at the beginning of the tea ceremony. The contrast between the unglazed and rustic finish called “Nanban-de” and the white glazed interior is beautiful and makes the tea inside look more beautiful. We also have Houhin, Sencha-wan, and Yuzamashi with the same Nanban-de finish.
