Located on the island of Hokkaidō (just north of Japan’s main island), the port city of Kushiro is known for its winter mist and summer fog. The lovely pale blue glaze that blankets this bowl evokes images of a thick mist rolling in from the sea.
This dreamy shade of blue creates a fantastic background color to show off the deep green of the matcha (with its foam) as it is being drunk from the chawan.
Please Note: NOTE: Each of these matcha bowls features this glaze in the colors shown. Bear in mind that each individual tea bowl will be its own unique expression of this glaze/color palette.
