Nobuyuki Kimura's deep admiration for the masterpieces of the Northern Song dynasty has served as the driving force behind his pursuit of Tenmoku, resulting in a diverse array of captivating colors and effects.
From subtle and poetic nuances to fearless and theatrical characters, each work seems to convey the different depths of emotions. This tetsuyo tenmoku tea bowl has a deeply primal yet sophisticated look, with oil-spot patterns that resulted from the iron crystalization achieved during the firing process. The perfect harmony with the unglazed foot is aesthetically pleasing too.
