Selection – Japanese Tea Ware
Japanese tea ware is one of the most popular items in our gallery. Like the world of crafts, the world of tea is very profound. With so many varieties of tea, and each one offering its own taste and further depending on how you prepare it, there are infinite combinations of types of tea and tea ware to experience and enjoy. We have high quality tea ware for everyday use and special artist-created matcha bowls, as well as dessert plates and trays to accompany tea time.
Matcha wan, or tea bowls for the Japanese tea ceremony, are emblematic of the deep sense of nature that characterizes Japanese aesthetics.
Matcha bowls are simultaneously utensils as well as works of art that profoundly express and embody each artists’ sense of beauty, in ways that can be appreciated not just visually but through the experience of touch and texture as well.
We carefully select one-of-a-kind pieces created by popular ceramic artists in prestigious production areas such as Hagi, Karatsu and Mino. Each one is truly unique, and we hope that you will find one that speaks especially to you, and will give you years of pleasure as you immerse yourself in the aesthetic and pleasure of matcha.
