This is a wood fired chawan I picked up at the Mungyeong Tea Bowl Festival in Korea this past month. It is made by Elena Renker, a New Zealand potter who works in shino. Wonderful lightness and feel in the hands.

I know this is not pot or cup, but it is good detail on great porcelain teaboat by Petr Novák. So teaboat and Wu Liang ripe tuo cha 2005... :)

So I went to the Folklife Festival in Seattle, hoping to have some fun, hear some music, maybe pick up some raw honey ... I never expected to be ambushed by teaware! Yet somehow I came home with a brand-new chawan anyway ... :oops:

Image

(Yes, that is a Transformer in the background. My own personal version of a teapet, I guess... :mrgreen: )

The piece was by Reid Ozaki, a local ceramic artist who is currently exhibiting work at the Seattle Center gallery. There were multiple chawan, yunomi and other pieces, all with these utterly amazing glazes in soft silver/gray/brown, crazed and pitted and threaded through with metallic silver in spots.

Image

It was amazingly hard to decide--it's a good thing my wallet forced me to pick only one. I ended up with this one--the metallic threading in the glaze can look either silver or coppery, depending on the light.

I'm not ceramics expert, but your chawan looks very nice to me. Enjoy.

Wow, that's a really cool chawan! I love the color variation of that metallic glaze... in the other thread where you have a matcha shot, it looks very coppery and the red accent and gray coloring complement the green really well....!

Thanks Tortoise, Drax! I really am enjoying it--if anything, it's hard to drink tea out of it when all I want to do is turn it around in my hands and admire all the color variations in the glaze ...

Imagining the magic of draining the matcha and slowly revealing the metallic sparkles......

If only I *liked* matcha.
