large Vintage Chawan
CHF 145.00

Unusually large bowl with beautiful running glaze in natural shades.

A chawan (translated: tea bowl) is a bowl used to prepare and consume tea, especially matcha. When using the tea bowl in the tea ceremony, its design is of particular importance. Thus, it usually has a front side, which is often more elaborate or highlighted by texture, color or motifs worked. Drinking from the tea bowl is usually done on the opposite side.

The glaze can crack over time, creating unique, stunning patterns. These cracks in the glaze are said to give the tea character and are often referred to as the "voice of tea." Each chawan is therefore unique.
