UDUMBARA pottery products are made by hand in Kallio, Helsinki, from genuine wild clay from the Kultela. The material gives the products a wonderfully rich earthy character and thanks to the porous nature and rich iron and other mineral content of the clay, tea brewed in a wild clay bowl develops a richer flavor.
Udumbara wild clay bowls are made for use. You have to play with them and caress and rub them with your hands often. Wild clay, gains its shine from your touching and rubbing. A well "loved" wild clay bowl has a better glow than a less "loved" bowl.
Never use soap or detergent on Udumbara wild clay bowls. Use it only for tea, it will absorb tea, as well as non-tea stuff. Don't put your bowl near any funny smell, especially when they are wet. Use it only for tea.
After use, extract all tea leaves from your Udumbara bowl. Rinse it with hot water to wash away all tea inside. Wipe it with soft fabric to get rid of all water. Then leave bowls in an airy place to dry. If you are in Helsinki you are welcome to visit the studio in Kallio, so that you get to touch our bowls. Natural clay has its strong, grounding feel. The studio is open by an appointment udumbara.youcanbook.me.
