Tenmoku (天目, also spelled "temmoku" and "temoku") is a type of Japanese pottery and porcelain that originates in imitating Chinese stoneware Jian ware (建盏) of the southern Song dynasty, original examples of which are also called tenmoku in Japan.
Shapes are simple and bold, with tea bowls the most typical. The emphasis is on the ceramic glaze, where a number of distinct effects can be produced, some including an element of randomness that has a philosophical appeal to the Japanese. The tea-masters who developed the Japanese tea ceremony promoted the aesthetic underlying tenmoku pottery.
Beautifully crafted by Boon, a Singaporean Master Potter, who is famous for his expressive glaze and his traditional Chinese pottery forms. This pot is marked with Boon's signature.
