✔ Every bowl has its own unique drawing with spots
✔ Lustrous glaze
✔ Artisanal traditional look
This glazed matcha bowl is made from light-coloured clay.
Every Ume bowl is unique. When in the kiln, a unique drawing of spots appears on each one of these bowls thanks to the clay's reaction with the ashes in the glaze. These decorative spots or speckles refer to the blossoms of the plum trees – Ume means ‘prune’ in Japanese, and is a symbol of devotion in Japan.
