Product Details: This bowl is 4.25" in diameter and 3" high. The diversity of colors, textures, and pattern creates an endless variety of visual and tactile adventures. For the design of this tea bowl, Ginny used gold leaf and a colorful representation of the brain's hippocampus area, where mindful memories are stored.
Fun Facts: Wabi-sabi stoneware reflects materials in the natural world and how they change from season to season and over time. In Japan, wabi-sabi stoneware that is not used is said to have died, and these pieces are passed from generation to generation.
