Matcha Bowl Volcanic Ash
This modern interpretation of a traditional chawan by Barry Braun at Swallowtail Pottery has straight sidewalls, unlike the Matcha Bowl Michigan Sand and Matcha Bowl Tenmoku, which feature an indented thumbprint. The simple yet bold form is meant to highlight the artful glaze and create a perfect shape for whisking matcha.
Volcanic Ash is glazed with historic Mount St Helens ash, hand-collected by Barry and his wife Cate, after the 1980 eruption in Washington State. The ash creates a distinctive dark brown speckling on the glossy olive green base. The exterior lower walls of the matcha bowl are unglazed, for a dynamic textural contrast that emphasizes the beauty of the natural clay.
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!
