CHAWAN - RAKUYAKI

61.75 65.00

Chawan (matcha bowl) made in a Juraku kiln, in the Rakuyaki firing style.

Height - 8cm
Diameter - 8.5cm

There are two types of raku chawan, aka raku (red) and kuro raku (black). Firing in low temperatures, the clay is rough and moulded by hand, so the chawan feels extremely comfortable to hold. Chawan used to be very expensive items of teaware imported from China or Korea. Sen no Rikyu introduced wabi cha, appreciating simplicity and nature, and asked tile maker Chojiro to make chawan. Chojiro became the first generation of Rakuyaki, which is now regarded as essential teaware to own by many matcha enthusiasts.
