This traditional Aritayaki (Arita ceramic artwork) is a famous pottery-making tradition in Japan with more than 400 years of history considered to be one of the best in Japan. This matcha bowl from the Dousetsugama kiln uses the Tatara technique in which a pottery wheel is not used but rather the piece is formed from a slate of clay.
The artwork features mugi or wheat at harvest time, making this matcha bowl seasonally appropriate for autumn.
