Traditional Kyo-Yaki (Kyoto Style)
Made by Kagetsu Hara at Kagetsu Kiln

This Matcha bowl is created by a technique called MISHIMA. Before the shaped clay is dried, patterns are marked by stamp stick, the design of which is based upon flowers or another similar design. After stamping patterns by hand, white clay is coated on the surface of the bowl, and wiped away by cloth in order to leave white color on the patterns. It is one of the traditional techniques of Kyo Yaki.

Flowers pattern by MISHIMA technique are applied to the outside of the bowl. Each flower pattern is impressed uniquely. A few lines are horizontally carved at the rim and bottom of the bowl. This line adds a little sharpness and tightens the appearance of the design.

White clay is coated very thickly on the surface of this Matcha bowl so that the patterns subtly appear. This gives the impression of gentle mist, which is quite charming. The combination and balance of MISHIMA pattern, white glaze, simple clay texture, and elegant form bring a peaceful and lovely atmosphere.

The pink color inside the bowl is created by a traditional technique called GOHONDE. GOHONDE pattern is brought by reduction in the kiln. This requires expert temperature control in the kiln. The linear marks made by brush are dynamically implemented. This traditional technique is called HAKEME. These two techniques add warmth and a gentle atmosphere to this Matcha bowl.

The artist Kagetsu Hara has made use of numerous special techniques and efforts to create this Matcha bowl. Considering the time and effort that went into creating this Matcha bowl, the price is quite reasonable. You will certainly be delighted with this gentle and lovely bowl.
