This hand-made, rustic-looking matcha bowl has character to spare. It is crafted from a rich, large-grain, particle-laden black clay and is lightly coated in a pinkish-white colored glaze. The black clay does wonders to enhance the appearance of the cracks, pinholes and the crackle pattern present in the glaze, giving the bowl a pleasant, time-worn, and aged look. When you pick up the bowl, the ridges cradle your fingers, making it very easy to hold.
We do not know the name of the potter who made this bowl, but his signature does appear in a clear mark for anyone who may be able to decipher the name.
Asymmetrically-shaped, modestly-decorated, and full of beautiful, intentional ‘imperfections’, this bowl exemplifies the wabi-sabi aesthetic.
