Chie Kobayashi practices Japanese and Chinese Style tea ceremonies that give her a profound understanding of the mechanics that go into the functionality of a vessel. Each piece has a beautiful weight in the hand that counteracts its character. The lip is always thin, the lines of the shape soft, and the carving by hand painfully evident. A universe of details engrained in this stoic white canvas is waiting for you to discover. Each use of this vessel will make it uniquely yours as the vessel begins to absorb the color of the tea!
