Suribachi bowl

I have been recommended by a few people to buy one of these bowls for my paste which I make myself.  Eventually I have got around to ordering one and it arrived the other day.  Very excitingly with Japanese stamps and post marks !  It has a charming resonance to it with a high glaze on the outside and rough on the inside with the characteristic markings on the inside to smooth out the paste.  A delightful addition to my tool kit.
