really glad to hear you appreciate them, I enjoy sharing these little moments from my day with people who might also enjoy seeing them...

on that note I posted a few new pics in the Japanese travel thread, some pics of toinseki, rikyu's Taian, and the copy of it at daitokuji.

Found a aka raku bowl today, no provenance or tomobako, but for 800¥ I couldn't pass it up.

Matcha: seiun by ippodo.

Rather sweet one for a production bowl. Potter caught the glaze with the fizz just right when it was pulled, nice subtle fire clouding, and the undulations of the kuchi are very nice.

Love the shot with the steam coming off the bowl.

I like the crazing in the glaze, and BTW seiun is the matcha I'm drinking today!
