Matcha Bowl Nanban Obi Mishima
Stoneware that is fired at a high heat for a long period of time is referred to as Yakishime. In addition to a simple, earth-like expression, the final product is non-porous and quite durable. As Yakishime is used for longer and longer periods of time, it becomes glossier, lending the ware a distinct depth of appearance.
