My name is Axel, I'm a 24 year old fanatic tea bowl collector. Ever since I found out how easy it is to get a hold of great pieces they have been my biggest expenditure.
I like almost every style out there, but specifically I like Ohi ware, Hagi ware, Shino and Bizen ware. I enjoy seeing them as pieces of work (not just something to use), i like using them (well most of them) and i'm thoroughly invested in some antique's that i plan on owning for a long time, so they will remain in a good state after I'm gone.
Anyway I love seeing and reading about Japanese culture/tradition and history. I like how they created a tradition (tea ceremony), that fits so well with their religions and/or beliefs.
Anyway if anyone managed to get this far, thanks for reading and see you around.
