Yep. I've used it once. I don't know what it is, it's beautiful, but for some reason it's just not on my "use" list.

Which chawan might that be?
Got a pic (dumb question)?
We were talking Deishi, but now Seigan?
Curious.

Only one I have, from the only time I used it. Not a good one for viewing purposes though, because I boosted the shadows way up. The pores and lines look more like caverns and fissures. :lol:

It's an odd bowl. Everytime I think I'll sell it, I look at it and think "this is FANTASTIC!" and yet, everytime I go to use it, I think "well, maybe not so..."

Oh! here's another, it's more accurate to the "glazed donut" look of the loquat.

Those images are SOOO cool! Thanks for sharing GG!
I swear, every time I pick up my camera now I think of you, ...and hope.
In seeing that loquat chawan, and then combining the image I see with how you describe your experience of it - I think I get it.
As always, I am inspired.
Cheers GG.

edit/addendum - In my confusion of previous posts, i'm curious, is the 'cavernous and fissured' :wink: chawan you have shared by Deishi or Seigan?

This one is Seigan. And as far as my photos, I try really hard to photograph the experience, rather than just the object. Sometimes I fail, but sometimes I don't. :)

Okey Dokey, as usual, it's actually afternoon - so today's matcha is Yame Matcha Sansui in Shyrabbit's Celadon Stoneware "Subtle". Please forgive what is about to come - but I was notoriously inspired by GeekGirl, and got all ~happy~ with my cam. :oops: :?

Great Chawan Seeker, its older brotherS reside here.

I call one an orc bowl complete with green blood, heh, the bowl illicits much imagery.

The other, a Klingon bowl, perhaps initially used during a klingon honeymoon tea that is sometimes fatal since it is poisonous. I will stick with Matcha.

Both are quite substantial, very masculine!

I just love this one [Biwa] to the touch. It is so light, yet so textured; and the texture isn't overbearing at all, just enough to let you know it's still there.
I really like the way matcha looks in it.
I think a larger size chawan like this would be STUNNING.
(...the sounds of whispered prayers).

Heh, just on today. For an extra inch diameter ... virtually like the SO #4 Biwa Wan ... $220.00 :shock: ... sure makes the SO #4 sound like a bargain.
