Chawan

All Ippodo chawan are made exclusively for us by artisans in Japan, to our design specifications. We work with these artisans to develop wide and deep chawan, to make the wide motion of whisking matcha easier, whether you are making regular usucha matcha, or koicha thick matcha. Our bowls are also light, and feel satisfying to hold in your hands.

A Mesmerizing Glaze

This tea bowl has an elegant tapered profile, with a little lip that makes the matcha feel smooth when drinking. Its dark glaze makes every bowl of matcha look radiant.

Once you finish drinking your matcha, take a closer look at the glaze on the bowl. You’ll find the glaze is full of little gold-brown flecks, like stars in the night sky. Depending on how each bowl reacts to the firing process, the glaze appear onyx or black-brown, making each of these chawan a one-of-a-kind creation. It takes a little more effort for the artisan to create this glaze, specially made for this original chawan, but we think the result is stunning.

Gifu Ware (Mino-yaki)

Gifu is a landlocked prefecture in the mountains in the central region of the main Japanese island, to the east of Kyoto. This prefecture is home to one of the most famous and storied traditions of pottery in all of Japan. Mino-yaki encompasses several distinct styles, each highly valued by the tea ceremony for centuries. The artisans producing our tea bowls in this region craft the clay for their works themselves by hand, from soil in the area.

Note: Bowl color may differ slightly from the images due to the firing process
