Lacquer Tea Bowl Urushi-wan (black, PI shape)

by Studio GALA, designed by Ryoichi Kobayashi

This tea bowl has a simple modern design that fits in the settings of any occasion. It is made entirely from materials, such as wood and Japanese lacquer, that are found and processed in Japan. Japanese lacquer is rare and highly sought after. Lacquer-ware keeps the temperature inside high while the outside remains cool. Therefore soup or coffee stay warm and you can hold the bowl easily and safely. It is light and far stronger than the bare wood. This Japanese lacquer bowl will be your favorite for cafe au lait, Japanese green tea, or soup.
