Even and continuous triangle patterns are inlaid inside and outside the bowl. Flower patterns are stamped at the bottom of the bowl.

SEIJI means celadon green color, and UNKAKU means clouds and cranes. This Matcha bowl is glazed in celadon green color, which is very traditional, and patterns of clouds and cranes are decorated inside and outside the bowl. Crane painting is a traditional auspicious composition symbolizing longevity. Cranes fly through the clouds, the pattern of which is designed in a very traditional manner.

Stamped cranes and clouds, and designed triangle patterns are coated with white clay and then wiped away. Refined adjustment force and precise timing of this critical step keeps the INKA pattern clear and enhances its gradation effect. The beak, head, and foot of each crane are colored black by iron constituents in the glaze, adding accent to the bowl.

The tradition of genuine design and pattern is well expressed on this bowl. Considering the quality, this Matcha bowl is extremely reasonable in price. We are certain that you will cherish this bowl for many years.
