An exceptional tea bowl handcrafted by Takashi Endo, which is made with purion clay, using a reduction firing method. This results in achieving a stone like textured interior and exterior. The lightweight, modern piece is completely unique, through Endo’s inspiring mark making which can be found at the base of the interior. The symmetrical, round body of this vessel makes it comfortable to hold, ensuring for a special drinking experience.
The monochromatic hues and thin forms are distinct to Endo’s work, embracing the imperfection of the materials he uses. This exquisite tea bowl is fully functional as well as being aesthetically pleasing, taking inspiration from architecture, music and Japanese culture.
As all products are handmade, sizes and colour may vary slightly.
