Japanese Matcha Bowl - 東山 Higashiyama Tenmoku Glazed Chawan with Bamboo Chasen Whisk and Chashaku Scoop - 500ml
This hantsutsu-gata chawan (matcha bowl) features a stunning yuteki tenmoku glaze. Made by Higashiyama (東山).
Originating in Jian ware from Song dynasty China, this style of high-iron glazing was originally praised for its dark colour which contrasts nicely with the froth of whisked tea. In Japan, these bowls became known as Tenmoku, named after a mountain in China. While most Tenmoku glazes are a simple black, occasionally the conditions in the kiln are just right, producing beautiful effects, such as the one seen on this cup, which is called Yuteki, or 'oil spot'.
The 100-Prong chasen (百本立茶筅) and matching chashaku are made with dark kurotake bamboo.
