Rikyu Chawan Matcha Bowl

+

Wood-fired chawan matcha bowl, handmade in the USA from stoneware

Created by fusing organization and chaos, our Rikyu Chawan is named after Sen no Rikyū, a 16th-century Japanese tea master who introduced the concept of wabi sabi, an aesthetic concept focused on finding beauty in imperfection, impermanence and incompleteness. 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 Rikyu 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.

Josh uses an ancient wood firing process, where ceramic wares are stacked into a large kiln and fired by a team of people over the course of many days. The pots are placed into the kiln raw and the ash that enters the kiln melts on the surface of the pots, creating a unique finish on each piece. With this technique, no two works are the same!

  • Wheel-thrown and altered
  • Made from a woodfire clay body
  • Fired to Cone 10 in a wood kiln 

Size: Measures approximately 4.75" x 4.75" x 3"

Capacity: Holds approximately 12 oz 

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

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