Quite a collection Britt. I did not have a lot of time to look, but see quite a lot of Choun Kiln pieces! Awesome.

Nice earnings, Tim! :mrgreen:

Very interesting Kyusu, Victoria. Smooth? Looks so textural ...

Thanks for sharing your newbies, Laura! Lovely colors.

Thanks Chip, yes it is a very smooth pot.

And now for something I rarely do, which is post a pic before I have the cup in hand. But I bought this little beauty from Etsy last night and I am so excited:

Here's a teacup made by a friend of mine in Taiwan. It is made of Yuankuang clay. The squiggle on the outside is a dragon. I love the contrast between the rough exterior and the smooth blue interior.

Size: 5.5cm Wide x 6cm High

Hahaha! Some very nice wares. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:


Thanks. Most of the kyusu are from Toru and Japanese Hand Crafts, the yunomi from 2000 Cranes and Zencha, and the matcha chawan from Mogokorodo and Artistic Nippon. The Fujiyama matcha chawan replica was purchased as a special order from Toru because his price beat Hibki-ans by more than $100 (368 + shipping versus $505 including shipping). This chawan looks much better than the pictures, which are from the vendor's site.

Thanks. I have much more but I didn't post what I put in storage. Some of those items look good but aren't very functional so don't get used often. Mistakes like fancy handmade kyusu that clog even when brewing lighter steamed sencha, Hagi cups that leak, one Hagi cup that would be one of my favorites except it leaks and smells terrible, etc. these were packed up and put to rest.

Thanks Chip. Since you're one of the resident Hagi experts, maybe you can answer a question. Most of the Hagi Yunomi I posted are by Noutomi Susumu. I also see items on sites like Artistic Nippon and Zencha by Noutomi Choun. They are both referred to as from Choun Kiln. Are these artists related or do they just use the same kiln?

Britt. Father and son. Choun is the father, and I believe the kiln founder. Noutomi Susumu joined the kiln in 1975 as an apprentice and continued to produce works very reminiscent of his father.

There is a mini cult following recently of both father and son.

There are 2 "Noutomi Choun", the father and also a younger brother of Susumu. The younger brother is now retired.

I see, where did you find this tid bit of information!

I have seen some confusing references to Choun ... that in this context might make more sense. But I never saw the specific reference to a brother of Susumu named Choun as well.

Don't forget, there is a Hagi topic here ... on page 68. http://www.teachat.com/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=8562&start=1005

Chip,

This info came from Masahiko Nishiki at Zencha.
