Tasei Kiln Tenmoku Color Stripe Arita Chawanmushi Bowl
Enjoy delicious Chawanmushi (Japanese steamed egg custard) with your favorite ingredients at home with this beautiful Arita ware Chawanmushi bowl from Tasei Kiln.
Tenmoku is a ceramic glaze known for its characteristic glossy and very dark colors such as deep brown or maroon, primarily attributed to its iron-bearing composition. Set against the backdrop of the Tenmoku glaze, a ribbon adorned in a spectrum of soft colors swirls, with patches of gold enhancing its allure.
The lid rests nicely on the bowl, and the handle on the lid makes it easy to lift. Without its lid, the bowl can also be used as a small Kobachi bowl to serve appetizers or side dishes.
Tasei Kiln aims to produce beautiful and heartwarming Arita ware that make dishes gorgeous and add color to the table. Originally, Tasei Kiln was renowned for specializing in the production of Chawanmushi bowls solely for commercial use. Today, the same refined techniques, once reserved for professionals, can be appreciated right in your own home.

ABOUT ARITA WARE
Arita Ware, made in the town of Arita in Saga Prefecture, is the oldest porcelain production area in Japan's history. Arita porcelain is characterized by its translucent white porcelain surface, dyeing using "Gosu" (indigo pigment), and gorgeous red painting using glassy overglaze pigments (red, green, yellow, purple, and blue). The pottery is highly durable and is produced in a wide variety of styles, from fine art to daily necessities. It was exported to Europe, where it was prized as fine art and called "white gold".
Arita Ware is also a prestigious brand that is admired by ceramicists from other regions as a representative porcelain production area.
