To celebrate our first collaboration with TOKINOHA Ceramic Studio from Yamashina, Kyoto, Kurasu Kyoto introduces a lipped bowl for you to enjoy Matcha green tea at home.
The bowl embodies the unique harmony of the craftspersonship and the minimalistic aesthetics- it is pleasing to the eye as is versatile, and it serves not only as a small Matcha bowl but for varieties of occasions to add an authentic touch of Japanese art to your home.
A small lip (spout) helps a smooth pouring of tea into your mugs/glass, or serving salad dressing at dinner- of course, you can use it as a matcha tea bowl to enjoy the tea directly from it, or let your creativity run free, float a seasonal flower and use it as a vase.
Established in Kyoto in 2009, TOKINOHA is based in the hometown of Kiyomizu yaki, Kiyomizu-danchi, and runs a crafting studio, a shop and a workshop. TOKINOHA is also known for their leading role in the industry to revolutionize the traditional way of working. “The working environment in Japanese pottery industry is harsh, and while it has been considered virtuous to endure the demanding, harsh working hours and work ethics, that is contributing to the fact that the industry is chasing younger generation away and we need to change that”- Kiyomizu-san, the head of TOKINOHA Ceramic Studio explains. Kiyomizu-san and his team have been exploring the options to solve the issues the industry faces, and aiming to attract the next generation to the world of pottery.
