The Design of these tea bowls is based on the 3000 years old bowls found in the heart of Bavaria (dating back to the Hallstatt bronze era). All objects are handmade using the technique of polished clay. The almost mirrorlike shiny surface is achieved by using certain stones. This quite time-consuming procedure has been known for at least 6000 years but is not much used today. Each item has a unique surface and colour. The first firing is done in the furnace, the second is done in the sawdust burner. The final colour is a result of "black-firing" with various kinds of saw dust.

Each tea bowl is a unicum and becomes valuable if used and looked after!

The bowls are also on offer as winter/spring and autumn/summer bowls with a thickness of 1-4mm. You can let me know what you want to use them for (friends and family, special/various occasions, rituals etc.)
Product care: Do not use washing-up liquid as not blackened patches will absorb it. Use only a wooden spoon. The "sweating" of the bowl is a natural process and will stop as soon as the tea particles are embedded in the pottery.
When you keep drinking your favourite tea out of the bowl the remaining residues from the firing will disappear (leave the tea for several hours in the bowl, rinse and repeat once or twice). Green tea contrasts in a golden-yellow colour at the bottom of the tea bowl, my personal recommendation.
