A one of a kind tall woodfired porcelain tea bowl from master Taro Tabuchi.

Taro Tabuchi is a ceramic artist born in 1977. After graduating from the Crafts Department of Osaka University of Arts, he received the Grand Prize at the 21st Asahi Modern Craft Exhibition in 2003, and he was selected as one of the artists at the 7th International Ceramics Competition Mino in 2005.

In 2007, he returned to his birthplace Kagawa, and constructed "Ana-gama (hole kiln)". While many artists choose to use gas and electric kiln as they are easier to control, he gathers firewood himself in the mountains and continues to create white porcelain by firing in a wood-fired kiln. The variation of fire and ashes that come out of wood-fired kiln produce unique color and pattern variations. In some cases, up to 50% of the work that is fired will be ruined in the kiln, unable to be salvaged or sold. But what comes out alive is cloaked in a mystery and beauty that must be seen in person to fully.
