Description:

The organic marbled swirl on these stoneware bowls comes from mixing dark Kuro-Neri soil with a lighter Sheri-Neri soil which is then hand-spun on a potter's wheel making each piece completely unique. The bowls' gentle curves give them a delicate appearance, but each one was finished in a white-hot kiln giving them a deceiving strength. Display one as a standalone piece of art or use them every day to hold fruit or serve rice.  

Measurements:
3.5" H x 5.5" L

History: 
The Gena Kuwan brand is a concept thought up by MISHIM designer Makiko Doi. Through her stoneware designs, she tells the story of a female sculptor named Gena Kuwan and her atelier who creates "vessels that resemble the work of a sculptor, with both strength and suppleness." To create Gena's pieces, Doi partners with Nankei Touen, a family-run ceramic shop Yokkaichi City whose products are all handmade by specialist Artisans.
