Fukunami matcha bowl is destined for drinking matcha and is made of porcelain of the highest quality. Fukunami is a matchawan of two faces – with pink dominance on one side and green elements on the other. As our matchawans are painted manually, each and every one of them is entirely unique. Distinctive wavy edges of the vessels further enhance the character to the entire Fukunami series, while their form pertains to centuries-old Japanese traditions within the field of ceramics. High walls of the vessel and its broad bottom additionally facilitate the process of mixing matcha with water and help to quickly obtain fluffy foam on the surface. This can be achived with the use of a chasen (bamboo whisk) or a milk frother.
Fukunami matcha bowl was designed and created by Quiet Form – a ceramics studio based in Kiev, specializing in porcelain products of the highest quality. Quiet Form was founded in 2006 by a couple of talented artists – Tania and Alex, dedicated lovers of alluring shapes and natural colours. Porcelain from Ukraine and certified enamel, which they use within their designs, are fired in traditional Japanese stoves at a temperature exceeding 1260 °C, which guarantees great durability of their pieces. Each matchawan is crafted manually, which makes every vessel inimitable.
The traditional way to prepare matcha comes from the Japanese Tea Ceremony. It involves using a matcha bowl, a bamboo whisk- chasen and a bamboo spoon- chashaku. Place 2 chashaku spoons of matcha (1,5g) in a matcha bowl and pour 100ml of hot water (80 °C). Chasen in hand, vigorously whisk your matcha from the wrist in m-shaped, not circular, motion. In about 20 seconds your bowl should be filled with a perfect jade-green foam. You can add more water now if you like your matcha to be less strong.
