This tea bowl is inspired by the black glazed tea bowls from the Sung dynasty (960-1279).

What makes this bowl also very interesting is a dark green, brown and blue colors variations. They were obtained thanks to the addition of natural willow ashes to the glaze and thanks to a very careful interplay of reduction and oxidation during the firing. 

This bowl is well suited to prepare matcha thanks to its shape, size and color. Or you could use it as a stylish waste water bowl.
