Got a box from Hawaii today, this is a piece that's going to be featured in a special Chaji, (fingers crossed, alongside something by John Baymore).
It's a nice grey shino over a tebineri formed very dark clay body that was fired in a saggar with indigo flowers. Great looking piece with some wonderful nesting and nice texture.
Took it for a test spin with a round of miyako-no- mukashi by Horaido for koicha, followed by seika-no-shiro by fukujuen for usucha.
I started my session off with some peach shaped okashi. These had some nice shiro-an miso inside.
After sweets it's time to get green.
Plenty of powder
Make the path
Miyako-no-mikashi may be my favorite koicha in kyoto for the time being.
that was awesome!
Time for some higashi.
now on to some usucha
Some more powder
Doesn't that look tempting.
Thank you Mr. Cory Lum!
