Inspired by tea bowls used in the Japanese tea ceremony, this small white tea bowl is made from a high-fire porcelain made from the purest kaolin in the world -- from a mine in New Zealand. It is a durable and extremely translucent porcelain. It was fired to over 2200 degrees for strength and durability. It is vitrified so it wouldn't leak even if left unglazed. Glazed inside and over about half of the outside with a food-safe clear glaze.
Great for warming your hands around a hot cup of tea or clam chowder or stuffing your face with Haagen-Dazs or as waterproof container for that little potted cactus in the ugly plastic pot, or as a candle holder.
Approximately 3 1/4 inches high and 3 1/2 inches wide. Holds almost a cup.
Food-safe and okay in the dishwasher and microwave.
At the time of writing this there were 8 in stock. The one, or more, you get may or may not include the one pictured above. They are all similar but not exactly alike.
If you buy more than one item the shipping may be more than it should be. If it is I will combine the shipping and refund the overcharge. If you want an estimate of the actual shipping before buying contact me.
I accept Paypal, credit cards, Apple Pay, Google Wallet, etc.
Pottery is heavy and fragile so shipping is always expensive. I use 200# test boxes, lots of foam and bubble wrap, double-box when necessary and take the time to pack so that you don't get a box full of shards.
I ship next business day (usually including Saturday).
I ship Internationally to many countries. I do not ship to some countries where I've had problems with delivery, customs, or insurance, or other retailers have reported problems with lost shipments (such as Italy, Russia, and Brazil). Internationally I ship Priority Mail International and Priority Mail Express International.
Just contact me within: 14 days of delivery
Ship items back to me within: 30 days of delivery
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
Customer Satisfaction Guarantee: If, for any reason, you are not happy with your purchase, return the pottery (undamaged, carefully packed and insured) within 10 days of receipt for a full refund of the purchase price. Shipping is not refunded.
Shipping both ways is refunded if the problem is caused by a mistake on my part or a defect in the pottery. Again, it must be returned within 10 days of receipt (You have 10 days to ship it back. It may take 15 or so days for us to receive it.)
If the pottery arrives damaged due to shipping, put the pottery back in the box packed the way it was before you opened it and contact me so that I can file a claim with the USPS or UPS.
