Yoshita Kasho Glass Gold Matcha Bowl Chawan
Inspired by a legendary golden matcha bowl made in the Momoyama period of the 16th century, this golden matcha bowl is a luxurious and elegant ware for the experience of drinking tea, reenacting the fascination of the aesthetics of 16th-century Azuchi-Momoyama style.
The green hue of matcha is beautifully enclosed by the radiating brilliance of gold leaf. As your eyes adorn the infinite glare of gold, the sweet and herbal fragrance of matcha strikes your senses. The gold surface is forever intriguing, as arbitrary creases of gold leaf create uneven patterns where no two angles display the same reflection of light.
The gold leaf is sealed in the inner layer, protected by glass, and then covered by a warm lacquered coating. Only the owner has the luxury of immersing into and adorning this ethereal and fantastic realm.
The moment you taste the hot matcha tea, the warm fragrance and the bitter-mild taste, coupled with the brilliance of gold, excite you in beautiful harmony. Passionate and vibrant, it's an equilibrium of bitter-warm subdued tones and the dreamy fantasy of gold — a glimpse into the aesthetics of 16th-century Azuchi-Momoyama style.
The glass protects the golden layer so you can cherish this piece in your everyday use without worry of scratches. The heat-proof glass was made in Aomori prefecture by Tsugaru Vidro, a region with a long tradition of glassware.
