A generously shaped bowl, its large capacity allows for the preparation of tea directly in this vessel, as with matcha (whisked tea) or any other tea using an infuser.


This bowl is a unique piece. This means that there cannot be two strictly identical bowls. It is made of porcelain and fired at high temperature at 1300°C. It is finely shaped by hand on the potter’s wheel. This bowl has a shiny and transparent glaze on the inside. The outside of the bowl is raw porcelain, resulting in a play between light and shadow and the translucency of the porcelain.


Devoid of decoration, the surface is nevertheless pictorial. The textured work achieved by stretching a porcelain slab gives a sensation of telluric chaos.


It is only through individual experience that our senses awaken, particularly the sense of touch. Besides the visual aspect of the piece, its didactic surface speaks volumes about its conception… the turned base of the bowl and the textured wall in raw porcelain contrast between smoothness and roughness.


Due to the composition of the glaze on the interior of the bowl and the high hardness of the porcelain, this ceramic is purely food-safe. It is completely waterproof and non-porous. It perfectly resists the aggressions of the dishwasher or even the microwave oven. Only a violent impact could possibly be fatal to it.

Depending on the tannin content of consumed beverages, such as coffee or certain teas, a patina may naturally appear on the interior surface after a certain period of use. Some may prefer to keep it, while others will clean it with baking soda.
