Han Tsutsu-Gata


Out of stock

This wood-fired tea bowl was a surprise to us when we excavated it from the kiln. The “Han tsustu-gata” form refers to its half-cylinder shape. This one features a cascade of nuka glaze inside and out, with unique “linen pleats” along the lip. We can’t help but recall snowy dunes on the beach in this vessel. Comfortably holds 70ml, though we recommend topping off at 55ml to discourage the production of unnecessary cinematic sequels. PLEASE NOTE: This glaze darkens and crazes without delay with each use. It is a natural outcome of your tea practice, and evidences inevitable forces of time and heat. Admittedly some love the aesthetic, and others less so. 4.5 x 7.5 x 7.5cm.
