Ramen. Ramen? Ramen. Not kidding you, I consulted with an actual group of ramen enthusiasts, with an appropriately wacky ramen adjacent name on the ideal size and height and shape of an ideal ramen bowl. and then I just laughed and discarded most of it because I mean… the ideal bowl held like 96oz of ramen. It was a big gulp of noodles. F’n nerds. This bowl is precisely the standard 4″ x 8″ you’ll find in restaurants and holds a very respectable 40oz of ramen. But what I was aiming for is that one bowl that makes each time you sit down with a hot bowl of soup special. That special bowl. The one that makes you happy when you pull it off the shelf. And this one comes with its own spoon- which will never ever fall into the bowl because a hook on the end prevents it from doing so. You can also hook it to the bowl. This bowl was thrown and then hand carved with melting clouds applied to the inside and a cobalt exterior.
