Record of the Artist
The hakeme is a type of korean pottery made by applying white mud with a brush to an iron rich base, applying transparent glaze, and firing.
The theory is that when applying white makeup to make the base material look beautiful like white porcelain, immersing it in white mud would cause moisture to spread and cause it to break easily, so people started applying it with a brush. There are also theories that the work process was simplified. Korean hakeme tea bowl, which were later introduced to japan, were prized by japanese master of tea ceremony. Various names were given depending on the period and decorative characteristics, and copies were made in japan as well. Among tea bowl, flat tea bowls are often seen.
