TEPPATSU POTTERY BOWL

‘Teppatsu’ is the black iron bowl used for ‘Takuhatsu’ (‘Pindapata’, Buddhist mendicancy) by monk. Basically made of iron, but not necessary to be iron for use as its definition.
This is a curious anonymous black pottery bowl in the form and the style of teppatsu, either made for actual use of takuhatsu as a Buddhist tool or made with the inspiration from teppatsu as an art work. Handbuilt with no potter’s wheel. Massive and thin make with oval mouth. A chip and a crack, but unfatal damage for use and scenery.

approx. D 17.7-14.8cm (6.96-5.82in), H 10.2cm (4.01in)
