Nichibei Shell Bowl - Chabuten Glaze

Item# NPB22C


This striking Nichibei Potters hand made organic shell bowl in chabuten glaze is marked with the Nichibei logo at the base. As each piece is a one of a kind handmade object, you may find slight variations in glaze and form. Variations are a beautiful part of the individual character and uniqueness of pottery made by hand. The piece you receive will be uniquely your own. The bowl dimensions are 8.5” long x 8.5” wide x 3.25” height. 

The work of Nichibei Potters is a blend of traditional Japanese folk art and contemporary design resulting in an innovative collection of hand made pottery. Each hand thrown piece represents a balance of form and function. Unique to Nichibei is a beautiful jade green color. The color is achieved by applying a copper glaze to porcelain clay and high-firing it in a gas kiln at 2,400 degrees.

Mikio Matsumoto became a potter after moving to California in 1985, and found clay to be the perfect medium for personal creative expression. Mikio’s sense of precision is visible in Nichibei’s meticulously carved jars. Cheryl Costantini has had a life long interest in pottery and traditional artistic expression. In 1978 she traveled to Japan. For the next 6 years she learned her craft by working in three Japanese potteries. Cheryl and Mikio formed Nichibei in 1985. Since then, the husband and wife team have shown their work at exhibitions in California, New York and Japan. Literally translated, Nichibei means “Japan and America.”
