Robin Hopper is well known for his dramatic studio ceramics. For this creation he has turned his formidable skills to a finely formed and richly glazed temmoku stoneware tea bowl with an undulating rim and slightly squared form. It is in excellent condition and well marked with Chosin Pottery Canada, Robin Hopper's personal monogram, and impressed signature.
This tea bowl would be a lovely Bhuddist Zen tea ceremony accessory and an attractive example of the Japanese aesthetic for this form of pottery and is a wonderful example of the art of this world renowned potter.
Robin is a dean of the Pacific Northwest Coast potter's community and was honored with the prestigious Saidye Bronfman Award for Excellence in Craft. He is an internationally known potter, teacher, author, garden designer and arts activist. He has taught throughout Canada, and in England, USA, Australia, New Zealand, China, and Japan.
