OMGTea Handmade Pottery Matcha Bowl
We have commissioned the studio Potters Thumb to produce a series of limited edition matcha bowls for OMGTea. Potters Thumb is based in Brighton and is home to acclaimed potter Mark Ciavola. Clay runs through Marks veins thanks to his mother Anna who influenced him with the mesmerising art and craft of ceramics from an early age in Malta. He has continued to master his artistic skill throughout a career that also includes other visual arts, ceramics and teaching.
Each bowl is produced individually on the potters wheel using traditional methods including glazing the bowls by dipping them in their bespoke glaze by hand.
The making of these lovely matcha bowls are true to the cultural and historic techniques used centuries ago and each bowl is unique with tiny imperfections that give them their own individual character and beauty.
