Matcha Bowl Tenmoku
This stunning interpretation of a traditional chawan by Barry Braun at Swallowtail Pottery differentiates itself from our other matcha bowls by its unique thumbprint. Barry designed each bowl to include a thumb-sized indentation in the sidewall to provide a convenient handholding guide, perfectly positioned for use by the right and left thumb alike. Its straight walls give this matcha bowl a simple and bold visual appeal that is meant to highlight the artful glaze and create a perfect shape for whisking matcha.
Tenmoku (also spelled Temoku or Temmoku) takes its name from the traditional Japanese pottery and highlights a glossy black and reddish-brown glaze.
This bowl is part of our collection of American-made teaware. With a shape and weight that is pleasing to the hand and mouth, our matcha bowls are not only perfect for preparing organic matcha but are also dishwasher and microwave safe (just like our other matcha bowl designs). All glazes are non-toxic and lead-free.
Please note: because each matcha bowl is individually handmade, variations in shape and color do occur and are celebrated!
