Zuikoh Tsuchitani expresses the scenery of spring on this Matcha bowl that one tree of cherry blossom is in full bloom with various colors. The scenery of cherry blossom is painted carefully yet luxuriously. The texture of clay and its form adds a high level of elegance.

SAKURA means cherry blossoms and KUMO means cloud in Japanese. Cherry blossoms are in full bloom, and can be seen as white clouds. Light color of pink, green and yellow are placed on bunches of white clouds of cherry blossoms sparsely, expressing that each flower blooms charmingly.

A light mist in navy blue surrounds the cherry blossoms, evoking the image of a night view. Despite the scenery of the night view, light orange color inside and outside the bowl softens its atmosphere.

The unique shape of the bowl also adds a subtle softness. Matcha bowl made by potter’s wheel is processed again by hand in order to express uneven feeling and texture. This effect gives three-dimensional appearance to the bowl, and feels as if we touch the tree of cherry blossom.
Unique texture of this bowl attracts our attention. White color of clay, which is very rare is used on this bowl, and the bowl is so light. This bowl has austere elegance and WABI SABI aesthetic.

This pattern of Matcha bowl is composed with the image of spring in Japan, but may be used throughout the year. Considering the quality, this Matcha bowl is extremely reasonable in price. The atmosphere of this bowl surrounds Matcha in a subtle softness like a warm spring mist.

Specially packaged in a carton box.
Lead-free. Made in Japan.
