Shigaraki is located in Koka City, Shiga Prefecture, and is recognised as playing a significant part in the long history of Japanese ceramics. It is included as one of Japan's six old kilns – being said to have a history of 1260 years. In 1976 Shigaraki-yaki (Shigaraki ware) was designated as a traditional craft in Japan.
Hechimon is a collection of Japanese ceramics by a third-generation Shigaraki-yaki maker, Marui Seito.
These handcrafted Japanese bowls are the perfect size to easily prepare and whisk matcha. They can also be used as a rice or soup bowl.
The unglazed exterior meets the hand with tactility. A mixture of muted tones from deep charcoal to rust brown appear due to the kiln firing process. As every bowl is handcrafted, each is unique and will differ slightly from piece to piece.
