Particularly striking is the round shape, which makes the Matcha Helice Bowl V particularly comfortable to use. It fits perfectly in the hands and has a pleasant size, which allows the bowl to be used in a variety of ways. Inside the bowl has been applied a glaze, which continues to the outer edge of the bowl and slightly reflects. The special, rough Helice pattern is here in particular contrast to the soft surface of the bowl. The pattern completely surrounds the exterior of the bowl and was also incorporated on the underside. Overall, the piece was designed to enjoy tea or matcha. Nevertheless, it can also be used wonderfully to eat smaller dishes or a pleasant breakfast. The Matche Helice Bowl V was handmade by Yasuhiro Cúze in Berlin. Each piece is unique.

I am a Berlin based Japanese ceramic artist. I completed the Design and Lab courses at Ishoken, and Tajimi City Pottery Design and Technical Centre.When I create, I do not think my objects are the leading part in the presentation of a meal. Rather the most important focus lies in the food, the artistic cuisine and its power to draw people together to enjoy it:it is the social aspect, rather than the product itself, that drives me to design. Therefore, I refers to my works as supporting actors; objects that exist naturally in our spatial environment.Many of my products are purposefully made large because I want people to come together using my products to join in the atmosphere and community of dining.
