Here is a Momoyama period Shino tea bowl. I like it but not as mush as others I have seen from the same period. I think the quality of the glaze and forming don’t measure up to the best. The feel of the surface of the exposed clay is very smooth. I think something that has been around and in use for 400 plus years will have a surface that is difficult to imitate.
