Michiho Fukumori, Mizusashi (Water Container for Japanese Tea Ceremony)
Mizusashi (water container for Japanese Tea Ceremony) by Michiho Fukumori. Fukumori uses traditional techniques for this ceremonial piece. Mizusashi are traditionally used by the host of the tea ceremony, and are one of the main objects in the aesthetic scheme of the host. A generous amount of natural glaze was applied to achieve this crackly, alive texture.
