Ichi-go Ichi-e Chawan Matcha Bowl

+

Modern, wheel-thrown chawan matcha bowl. Skillfully crafted in Austin, Texas, USA

Created for the purposes of enjoying the beautiful moments created by tea, our Ichi-go Ichi-e Chawan takes its name from the Japanese idiom meaning "one time, one meeting."

The concept dates back to the tea ceremonies of the 16th century, where participants would meet to have tea together with the understanding that this exact ceremony will not reoccur in their lifetime. Therefore, it – like all of life’s chance encounters – should be approached with respect, sincerity and attention.

Whisking, sipping and enjoying our Ceremonial Matcha and Komorebi Matcha from our artisan tea bowl is an unequaled experience, and one we are delighted to share with you.

Material: Stoneware, wheel-thrown and altered

Origin: Austin, Texas, USA

Care Notes: Food safe, dishwasher safe and microwave safe

Gachi Chawan Artist Josh

Hand-crafted by Mississippi native and potter Josh, our Ichi-go Ichi-e Chawan is a work of attentive craftsmanship and skill. Army-sniper-turned-potter Josh is known for his diverse tea bowl styles which take inspiration from artists such as Akira Satake, Shozo Michikawa and Janine Antoni.

His work blurs the distinction between functionality and art, utilizing texture as a main component of his pieces.

  • Wheel-thrown and altered
  • Made from a dark clay body
  • Glazed with a matte black, dinnerware safe glaze
  • Fired to Cone 6 in an electric kiln

Due to the unique process used to make these bowls, no two are alike, so there may be slight differences in your bowl and the ones pictured above.

Each chawan matcha bowl is wrapped in protective bubble wrap and packaged in a cardboard box.
