Dream drippy gorgeous with the ribbon of thick green on the outside and the pool on the inside. Wow.

And only ~$60. Not too bad. But generally out of my price range. But it is drool worthy.
The coloring looks more spring or summer to me, but the shape is wintery.

I've had my eye on that one, I think it's the second time through, so twice on my wishlist - there was a similar one in between but not quite so nice unless I'm seeing wrong. It's beautiful, I think - makes me think of Monet, seaside, luscious.
I'd love to snag it but I got outbid on that really gooey Hagi bowl last night (there were several Seigan pieces that went almost at once, all reasonable, I thought, but just out of my reach) and I'd better breathe. I'm sort of relieved that there's nothing quite right for me this time in Petr's new firing; gads this is addictive. Just looking at stuff is addictive.
Just read the old Hagi archives - watching old timers here I see that four years later it apparently doesn't cease, this mud lust... :):) It would have been lots of fun to have been on board in 2009! People picking up gorgeous stuff for $25, and all that newly appreciative energy, makes me feel fond.

I really love David Holden's work, especially those deep russets, and surfaces like apples and late pears. This one's extraordinary - he says somewhere that they're all pinched, wow, really lovely forms to me. Nice versatile size, too, and wants a belly full of roasty oolong. But I'm on severe wares hiatus for a while. :

It takes a lot of wading and some wincing, but there are some really fine potters in Etsy.

It's easy to just favorite the shop, then checknthenfavorite shops list daily to see when new wares are posted.....although this habit can be dangerous in its own way.

I got lost on Mitch Ilburg's page today for a long while and would certainly like to have these:

Dangerous indeed...what's more dangerous is just logging into TeaChat. :lol:

Neither can I, but then Debunix (or another Teachatter) posts when new wares are available. That's how it came to pass that 2 Shyrabbit Yunomis are on their way from Colorado to NJ!

I peruse Etsy daily for new wares, it's all very organized (mostly favorite pieces rather than shops so I can remember better). Then I check Artistic Nippon, then my Ebay watch list and various search lists. Then Troc and some others that don't roll as fast. Make sure Petr and Andrjev haven't snuck anything on Darjeeling. And I very rarely buy anything, as I can't - it's a relaxing pleasure. Then I go read about various Japanese traditional pottery, and linger in various online museums, and artists pages, which of course tangents in a lot of fecund directions.
Lately I spend as much time reading about actual materials, technique and process.
And planning my tiny, tiny, tiny modest little studio (shhhhh). There's a community accessible Noborigama kiln just 30 minutes away, and do I not have hands, and an urgently creative little mind, and something like reverence for the art of pottery, and take profound delight in these forms (and looking at museum pieces endlessly, even if only in photographs) and more time than anyone ought to have since retiring?
So that makes all of the looking even doubly, no, infinitely, more interesting.
