I do love this bowl. It is very well made. I love the simple pure white color, though, it is a bit different than the picture (to be expected though as each is an individual creation). It's easy to make a frothy bowl of matcha in it. I like that the base is cut making it a little different than most matcha bowls. Aside from there being no stamp from the artist (which is important to me), I am more than pleased with this bowl. However, Kettle should be more aware of their offerings being stamped in order to assure authenticity. I ordered another matcha bowl (Kohiki Chawan) and that wasn't stamped either, even though their picture shows a stamping on the underside.
When purchasing the Kohagi Chawan, I requested photographs be sent before shipping if the item was different than pictured, but no pictures were sent. What really spoke to me about this image was the subtle radiating pattern on the interior and drips on the outside. What I received was homogenous and without the radiating pattern or drips. I am very disappointed.
