I am a Gold Chawan. All that glitters is not gold. Never let your tea grow cold.
Masanobu Ando built this chawan using the Japanese tatara technique, rejecting perfection and welcoming serendipity to give the piece its unique spirit. The primordial form has the warmth of human hands, and the metallic glaze transforms the ceramic into a mysterious new material. As I look into the depths of the bowl, its flecks of gold glitter look back at me like stars. As I turn the bowl between my hands and experience the infinite variation of shadow and light, I feel inspired to accept things as they are. Not perfect, but beautiful.
