Usually, ceramics are decorated by drawing or printing patterns on plain plates or bowls.

However, these unique donburi bowl and tea cups are produced with another way. Craftsmen carved patterns directly to the ceramics.

In fact, the mold craftsmen take about 2 weeks to produce a mold. So, the unique donburi bowl and tea cups are exactly hand-carved knit!
