Description
There are several kinds of tea bowl catagorized in the Ido type, O-ido, Ko-Ido, Ao-Ido, Ido-waki, and Ko-kannyu to name a few. The common features include glaze over the entire piece, rokuro (wheel) mesh, Kairagi, and a foot like a bamboo joint. This work falling into the catagory called Ko-Ido, has a slim, balanced, body. Though it does not have such a magnificent atmosphere as pieces in the O-ido group, it does have an easy atmosphere and indescribable elegant rusticity.
