Taishi Kiln Hanazume Kutani Matcha Bowl Chawan
This luxurious handmade matcha bowl features a gorgeous "Hanazume" design and "Chibu" on a black background.
"Hanazume" is a typical Kutani ware design from the Taisho period (1912-1926), meaning "full of flowers," and it is covered with floral designs.
"Chibu" means "dot" and is one of the traditional patterns of Kutani ware. It takes a great deal of skill to hand-paint small dots of the same size, at equal intervals, and in the same color.
The smooth and thin rim makes it easy to drink matcha. It is also recommended to drink coffee or tea.
