Iga Small Bowl with Hexagon Foot {Matsubai}

Title:  
$ 40.00 USD

Round small bowls with hexagon foot handcrafted by artisans in Iga, one of the traditional pottery centers in Japan using locally sourced materials.

These bowls come in different natural glazes: Sekkai (Light Grey), Shino (White) and Matsubai (Green-ish beige). This listing is for Matsubai glaze.
Glazes are applied only around the bowl part and the foot of each bowl is left unglazed showing the natural look of the original clay creating nice contrast between the glaze and the clay. 

These small bowls (kobachi) are ideal for serving small portion of food such as nuts and nibbles, or to use as guinomi for drinking sake or tea.

Please expect slight variations in shade, tone and size in each product due to the nature of handmade products.

To best protect the Iga Bowl ceramic from stain or odour, a special treatment before first use is required. Care instruction will be included with the product.
