This chawan/matcha bowl was handmade on the potter's wheel. It is glazed in a glossy clear glaze and glaze fired. Then I apply mother of pearl overglaze and fire it for a third time for this pretty iridescent effect. I love it!! :)

this overglaze can be used on surfaces that come into contact with food and drink.
care must be taken to avoid hard scrubbing when washing overglazed ware, because of the possibility of scraping off the thin layer of luster.
