Having a dedicated bowl that is beautiful, simple, and sturdy adds a layer of purpose and enjoyment to your tea ceremony. For this piece, Mike Weber used a Japanese Shino glaze to give the chawan its blushing color, which beautifully accentuates the bright green matcha. Our favorite part is the distinctive shapes and markings from the wood-firing, which emphasize the bowl's sculpted qualities.

Mike Weber

There is something very romantic about Anagama kilns, and with over 50 years of experience working in clay and Japanese wood-firing techniques, Mike Weber is a Casanova of sorts. Living in northern Wisconsin in a studio surrounded by 90 acres of pristine wilderness, Weber's work is heavily influenced by the natural materiality surrounding him. Instead of perfectly controlling the outcome, he relies on the alchemy of wood, fire, ash, and clay, resulting in pieces that are uniquely beautiful and unexpected. Having exhibited his work throughout the United States, Europe, and Japan, Weber now hosts multiple summer workshops that teach the process of firing a traditional Anagama kiln to potters from all over the globe.
