Chawan Blue Aya

$ 44.00

Shigaraki ware is a type of stoneware pottery, made from the sandy clay from Japan's largest lake, Lake Biwa, in the area of Shigaraki.  It is one of the Six Ancient Kilns of Japan.  Early development of Shigaraki ware embraced the concept of wabi-suki or the belief of emphasizing humility, simplicity, and intense appreciation of the moment. 

Chawan Blue Aya is a perfect bowl for your daily practice of wabi-suki.  Presented in a paper gift box.

CARING FOR YOUR TEA WARE :  All craft-made ceramic and porcelain tea ware should be treated with more care than you would your daily dinnerware, which can stand the abuse of dishwashers and aggressive detergents.  Make it a habit to rinse with fresh water and dry your tea ware immediately after use.  Avoid letting tea remain in your cups or bowls for extended periods as more porous glazes and even porcelain will allow stains to develop.  Our Samadoyo pieces are made from tough borosilicate glass and will stand being cleaned in the dishwasher.
