To dust we recommend using a gentle natural bristle dust brush.
Should the pieces need to be washed, please use lukewarm water and a mild soap, towel blot and air dry completely at room temperature.
To create these paper thin porcelain bowls, the artist uses hemispherical casts, into which she pours liquid porcelain in order to solidify the ceramic. In the process, the artist gently draws circles with the cast, allowing the porcelain to build around itself layer upon layer. This japanese technique requires a very slow and meditative state to achieve the desired result.
After naturally setting within the cast, the dry porcelain is very gently removed. This step is critical, as the thin porcelain can shatter into a powder until it is fired in the kiln.
Once the piece is fired at very high temperatures, it develops hardness and durability.
