Augie, you and I think alike. I figured I was getting my gov't hush money...I mean, "economic stimulus bonus" so, why not use it to boost another country's economy?
The white glaze on the Oni Hagi is very smooth while the brown areas are very rough clay (mixed with sand). It does look like frosting. I don't know if you can see it in the picture but there is a lavender tint to the white glaze on the outside of the bowl.
Victoria, I love those glass cups. I thought about getting some but I kept hearing that they were very fragile. Let us know how they hold up.
