The Team's opinion
Without a doubt, the most striking feature is the shape of the bowl. Unlike the bowls we're used to seeing, it's wider, a little smaller and very, very beautiful. What's more, we loved taking the time to admire the patterns on the bowl, which are really different from one to the next.
The team really enjoy using it for soups and rice dishes.
Change and transformation
Based on the shape of the Oryoki bowl, the craftsman has used a reactive glaze that transforms randomly in the ceramic kiln. This design reflects the philosophical values of Buddhism: change and transformation.
"There is nothing constant except change."
