As part of our "Limited Release" series of handmade Matcha Bowls by potter artisan Chicaco Smith, this small size Chawan takes its name from the resemblance to the colour of plum fruit (UME in Japanese)
Chicaco Smith was born in Tokyo, Japan and she spent most of her adult life in Australia with extended periods in Washington DC & Tonga. She enjoys pottery as it enables her to use her imagination and creative skills.
Sumie (Indian-ink drawing), calligraphy, water colour painting and Japanese Tea Ceremony all form part of her culture and interests.
Like all our "Limited Release" pieces, this Chawan is a one-off item on our store, meaning that only 1 piece in this shape and pattern has been created and so there is only 1 available.
