Japanese Chawan (tea bowl) by Sakata Deika (Sakata Ippei). Sakata was from a traditional pottery family that belonged to the four main lineages of the Fugawa kiln in Hagi (Yamaguchi Prefecture). In 1950 he became the thirteenth head of the Fugawa kiln and assumed the artist name Deika XIII. Sakata's greatest achievement is the revival of the Ido tea bowl. This happened during the post-war period. Sakata Deika died in 2010. Ido bowls originated in Korea where they were used for rice since the late 16th Century. This style of tea bowl has been highly appreciated in Japan for tea ceremony because of the rustic beauty.
