The hemisphere tea bowl has an unusual eye-catching look due to the three legs and a rim resembling flower petals. Glazed walls are thick enough to retain the heat of the tea staying lukewarm from outside. The bowl has pleasant to touch dull crackle glaze covering 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.
