EXCEPTIONAL ✔ palm sized tea bowl with traditional Shino glaze following the style of the traditional Japanese Chawan. This bowl has not been thrown on the pottery's wheel but is entirely hand formed. More than the sum of its parts—this earth toned tea cup is one of my very best.

GLAZE ➤ The traditional Japanese Shino glaze displays a broad rusty orange red as it flows over the bowl contour and surface texture to create a beautifully complex tonal range. Gas kiln reduction fired @ cone▲10 (1250℃) over cork colored vitreous stoneware. The rusty variegated tones develop as the kiln is slowly cooled. This glaze combination is lead free, food safe and in-use tested.

DETAIL ➤ This very personal tea cup fits perfectly in the palm of your hand to radiate the warmth of the tea held inside. The Shino glaze has a wonderfully comfortable texture that must be held to be understood.

SIZE ➤ This tea bowl has an 6 ounce capacity and measures 3½ diameter x 2¾ height.

VALUE ➤ My work is not inexpensive because I have no economies of scale. Compared to industrial manufacturing ceramic handcraft is laughably inefficient. Perhaps it's foolish to make something one step at time or perhaps that's the only way to create unique qualities?

HAND ➤ All of the pieces I list are entirely my own hand work: from designing the form, mixing the clay & glaze, forming my stoneware & porcelain and glazing and firing the finished work. I do everything involved but process the raw materials.

SHIP ➤ The photographed piece is ready to ship and the actual piece you will receive. I ship either UPS, FedEx or USPS Priority—the cost of which is included in the price for US delivery. I ship in new corrugated cartons and double box all international shipments so that your piece will arrive in perfect condition .
