The tea bowl has a shallow conical shape allowing the tea to cool up quickly. It’s a perfect choice for hot summer season. Though the bowl looks almost weightless it's steady enough to put it safely on the table. The vessel features famous crackle glaze created with the help of so called craquelure technique when the glaze shrinks more than the porcelain. If you continue to drink tea of the same type from the same “сrackled” bowl, the infusion will reveal more and more flavors and hues in the course of time. The inner surface is adorned with a hand-made picture of a lotus flower. The extra layer of transparent glaze protects the painting.
