Description

Water containers (mizusashi) and teabowls (chawan) are two important tools for the practice of drinking Japanese powdered green tea (macha). The mizusashi contains the fresh cold water used to make the tea. Yoshida Yoshihiko has his kiln near the city of Toki, in Gifu prefecture, the original area of Mino ware production from the late 1500s.
