No. For Rikumo Chawan - Kotton

2 items left

The Kotton Chawan is one of two limited edition chawans (matcha bowls) in our exclusive No. for Rikumo collection. Rendered in a translucent, milky white gaze, this handmade chawan is a vision of weightless fluidity that contrasts with its matte Motukan counterpart. Kotton is designed as a summer bowl, which traditionally features a wide lip and surface area that allows the matcha to cool faster. A textured bottom base reveals the original nature of natural clay as the source from which all ceramic artistry is born.


Each chawan is one of a kind and hand made by artist Romy Northover. All chawans come packed in a limited edition, individually numbered gift box.
