About Raku Yaki
Raku Yaki is known for it's soft material and hand shaping technique without using a wheel. The look of the bowl is very simple aligning to Wabi Sabi philosophy, yet many details are taken into consideration. The shape of the bowl is carefully crafted so that it can be held in hand snuggly and comfortably.
Soft clay is used to shape Raku ware, so it's a lot lighter in weight than it appears. Initiation is required before using Raku ware. Simply soak the bowl in starch water for an hour, so the fine particles will seal the micro holes in clay and make the bowl more durable; however light crack may still happen and it's a normal occurrence. Please do not use the tea bowl for any other uses than making high quality matcha.
Limited quantity available. Original wood box with artisan's signature will be included. This Raku bowl will be shipped with completed initiation.
