Tobe ware was designated as a "national traditional craft" in the field of ceramics in 1976, the sixth in Japan.
What an unexpected treasure. The design is just as cheerful and refreshing as they say. Looks even lovelier in-person. The gold flecks provide the ever-most subtle, soft luminescence to the bowl. Has a nice height/depth to it, highly versatile/handy. Personally, I’m loving this delicate yet sturdy bowl for porridge, fruits, and dinner sides.
Thanks so much for your wonderful comment! We wish the bowl makes your days a little more special!
