黄瀬戸茶碗
Kiseto chawan

碁笥(ごけ)とは碁石を入れる容器ですが、お茶碗で高台がなくのっべりとした底のことを碁笥底(ごけぞこ)というそうです。この黄瀬戸茶碗は碁笥底です。また油揚げに似た色で、手触りも油揚げの様ざらっとしたしたものを「油揚げ手」と呼ぶそうです。草文様が線彫りされており、胆礬(タンパン)(硫酸銅釉)で緑色に着色されています。茶碗の身が薄くタンパンが裏に染み出して「抜けタンパン」と呼ばれるものもあるそうです。

Goke is a container for “go” stones.  Due to the similarity in shape, the bottom of chawan that is rather smooth and without koda’i is referred to as “gokezoko” (the bottom of goke).  Photographed here is kiseto (yellow Seto) chawan with gokezoko.  A surface that resembles abura’age(deepfried bean curd skin) in color and texture (slightly rough) is called “abura’agete” (abura’age style).  A grass pattern is carved into the surface, and “tanban” (chalcanthite)(copper sulfate glaze) is used for the green accent.  When chawan is thin and “tanban” bleeds through to the back/inside, it is called “nuketanban” (through tanban).
