This wood-fired tea bowl has a slightly curved lip and bamboo-style foot, with a variety of “wet-to-dry” surfaces that undulate from rough to glossy on the exterior, and creamy nuka glaze on the interior. The “Komogai” form originated from Korea, and was infused into Japanese ceramic practices around the Momoyama period. This one features a subtle swirl nearly obscured by the creamy glaze. Comfortably holds 90ml, though we recommend topping off at 60ml to maintain your sense of balance. 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. 5.5 x 7.5 x. 7.5cm.
