This unique matcha bowl features a glossy light grey color background and irregular darker cracks. The technique used to produce this effect is called KANNYU, which gives the appearance of a cracked surface due to the different levels of shrinkage between the earthenware and the glaze. When the heated bowl is cooled down, a substance called iron oxide is rubbed over the surface of the bowl, allowing the color to gradually sink into the cracked lines. This bowl is perfect to prepare matcha due to its shape and firm grip. In fact, thanks to its shape, you will be able to prepare matcha by using a whisk and avoiding any spillage. Each pattern of cracking is so different that each bowl is simply unique. Enjoy every sip of your matcha in this elegant matcha bowl!
Natural variations make each matcha bowl unique.
