The hemisphere tea bowl is a fine example of traditional Chinese pottery known for its “hare’s fur” glaze. The pattern that occurs naturally during firing has been popular since the Song dynasty (960-1279) and is highly valued by today’s amateurs of tea ceremony. A thick clay body of the bowl retains the heat of tea well and at the same time stays lukewarm from outside so you won’t scald your fingers. Аn unglazed bottom feels comfy in the hand. Three legs ensure that the bowl won’t tip over easily.
