Kuro x Shiro
Born and raised in Shigaraki, a town in Japan famed for its ceramics since the medieval period, Naoto Tanii, has followed in his parents’ footsteps as a potter.
Sourcing local Shigaraki clay, a sandy clay with a warm orange hue from Lake Biwa, together with Nara clay, Naoto’s bowls are of refined simplicity and function.
These Katakuchi (pour lip) bowls have been specially hand-made for ZANSHIN.
Material: China clay
Approx Measurements: 9cm in height, 12-13cm in diameter
Use: To preserve the quality of the bowl we recommend soaking the bowl overnight prior to first use.
Colour: Overtime the colour of the crackle glaze will evolve to bring out its own personality.
Note: All his tea bowls are made by hand. Each bowl may differ slightly from the photo and have their own character.
