The latest in artist Austin Danson's series on iron-glazed chawans, this gorgeous jet-black chawan is the perfect, polished canvas for our emerald matcha. The bowl was thrown spontaneously to show the throwing lines that reveal the nature of the clay as it spins through the air.
The artist writes, "[This chawan is] As if walking into a cave in a hidden mountainside to find, deep inside, a bowl made from the earth itself and polished by time. I would sit there awhile a drink a bowl. You can tell me if that too cheesy, but it’s how I feel."
Stoneware iron glaze.
