diameter: 4.92inch (12.5cm) height: 3.15inch (8cm), standard matcha bowl size
Traditional Kyo-Yaki (Kyoto Style)
Made by Shunzan Mori at Shunzan Kiln

KOGIKU of this name is wild chrysanthemum in Japanese. Wild chrysanthemum is one of the most appreciated flowers in the Japanese tea ceremony. Considering the price and quality, this Matcha bowl is an outstanding value.

Wild chrysanthemum, lespedeza, and Japanese silver grass, which are all well appreciated flowers in Japanese tea ceremony, are carefully and vividly painted on the side and inside. This pattern of Matcha bowl is composed with autumn flowers, but usually used throughout the year. Though the color and brushwork are vivid, the whole atmosphere is amazingly soft and gentle, a beautiful effect characteristic of Shunzan’s expert artistry.

This Matcha bowl is the traditional standard Kyo Yaki shape. However, Shunzan has added a few special touches such as linear patterns carved on the side and a spiral on the lowest point of the bowl inside. The base is carefully carved to a unique shape. They all bring a gentle accent to the atmosphere.

Colorful patches of orange are called GOHONDE, a traditional technique that adds warmth to the atmosphere of the work. It is impossible to fully control the contrasting density of GOHONDE, so that GOHONDE is a little different in each work.

This Matcha bowl brings the cheerful feeling of walking through a field of flowers, an airy feeling of lightness. It will certainly add joy to your green moment.
