Shiro is the Japanese word for white. Shiro is a series of porcelain bowls in six different sizes designed to meet almost every need you may have for a container. Each bowl is marked with a little indigo blue dot indicating its size, and referring to small Japanese stamps often used to sign a product or a paper.

The Shiro Bowls are handcrafted in thin, transparent porcelain. Given the very soft and vibrant material and the high temperature firing each bowl will obtain
an individual curve making every piece unique. The collection has been crafted in Vietnam at a Danish DANIDA supported ceramic factory in a region with more than 1.00 years of tradition with ceramic production.

The little indigo blue dot is inspired by small Japanese stamps often used to sign a product or a paper. The dot also indicates the size of the bowl.
