Bowls & Cups 茶碗

The bowl, chawan, or cup, yunomi, that you drink your daily tea from is a highly personal choice.  Whether it be a simple, unadorned cup or a one of a kind bowl, made and signed by the craftsperson, you feel it when you see one that is right for you.  

Japan has one of the oldest and most highly esteemed ceramic traditions in the world split into two rather polarized aesthetics.  Finely finished and decorated porcelains influenced by Chinese traditions and simply formed and humbly decorated earthenwares in line with Buddhist traditions.
