This is a matcha bowl (chawan) for the tea ceremony, formed by kneading black and light blue clay on a potter’s wheel. Made of handmade stoneware, it is thin and very light, with a modern design in which the unglazed exterior is comfortable in your hands, and the mirror-like glossy black glazed interior reflects the color of matcha green. The underside of the bottom is covered with a bronze-colored glaze that looks like a dull-colored full moon, with a mark stamped next to it.
Dishwasher-safe, microwave-safe, **not for oven**
H = 3 inches, W= 4.5 inches
Weight = 8 - 8.5 oz
Please understand that the size and weight of each piece may slightly vary because it is made by hand thrown on the potter’s wheel.

Those almost works are unglazed finish, but they are fired at a high temperature to tighten the base, so beverages such as coffee and tea do not stain. However, red wine can soak into the white base and may stain it. For more information on how to prevent and remove stains, please check the special booklet included with the order of white-colored pieces.
