Title

Hagi ware tea bowl


Artist

SAKATA Deika

Japan

1915 - 2010


About

Born as Sakata Ippei, Sakata hailed from a traditional potter 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’s name Deika XIII. Sakata’s greatest achievement is the revival of the Ido tea bowls in post-war Japan. Ido bowls originated in Korea where they were used for rice; in Japan they became highly appreciated in the tea ceremony since the late 16th century for their rustic beauty.
