Description

Enjoy your favorite cup of matcha with this luscious handmade chawan, or tea bowl. It was thrown on the wheel in my Vienna studio of a stone-hard stoneware clay, painted with iron brushwork and glazed with a white shino glaze. The iron painting causes the white to become a glossy white in some places, a dark matte red in others, and in yet other places browns and greens. Discover something new with each use.

This chawan was fired in a wood-fired kiln designed by the famed Japanese kiln builder Masakazu Kusakabe. The 60+ hour firing reached temperatures exceeding 1350°C (approximately 2462°F; cone 12+), which make this tea bowl especially strong.

On the outside, the flame from the wood ash in the woodfired Sasukenei kiln causes the glaze to vary depending on which angle you look at it. On one side, the pure glaze; on the other, the wood ash from the fire has created a natural glaze that drips down towards the foot. Look inside and see the glaze turn to a deep fire-y red, and broken up by pinholes that are a natural result of the firing process.

Each piece is completely unique.

Intended exclusively for use with matcha tea.

Approximately 9.5 x 12 cm.

FAQs

All of my pots are fired to stoneware temperatures; that is, in excess of 1240˚C (2264˚F). This high temperature makes the glaze and clay waterproof and strong. "Stone"ware for a reason. Unless otherwise noted, all items are dishwasher safe. However, I do recommend washing by hand to protect your investment.

Some of the glazes may develop small cracks that become more obvious with use. This is a natural product of the glazes and glazing process, called crazing, and only adds to the pot's handmade character.
Please ensure a secure shipping address, because I cannot be held liable for theft or loss of a package.

I pack my work securely, just as I would want to receive it. However, in the unlikely case your pot arrives damaged, I will happily exchange it for a similar pot of equal value.
I do my best to accurately represent all my work, in words and pictures. However, because each piece is unique, dimensions are approximate. Please allow for slight variations in size, shape, and color, consistent with the piece's handmade nature.
If you would like to stop by and see me work, or pick up your purchase in person, I'd love to see you! Just leave a note at the checkout stage of your order, or send me a message, and let's set up a time.
