Hi Chip,
I was just navigating to Cory's artisan topic and noticed the messaging feature - and he had responded!
I hadn't noticed!
Oops!
Thanks again for your help.
Best,
Jim

Nice iannon.
Really like those mysterious blues come out in the 2nd photo.
And that matcha looks so frothy and wonderful - I want a sip!

I just received this beautiful chawan, it's creator Jay Strommen.
Once again, I apologize for my exceedingly amateur photography skills
(no skills really) - gosh I'd love to be able to make images sing like GeekGirl!!
I love the beautiful chadamari.
It's just a bit small for my liking at 4"H x 3.6W, but I love it just the same.
Cheers!

Most of us dont have the photog skills of Geekgirl or Sal ( see my not so great pics above as an example!)..but I think everyone gets the feel for our cool teaware anyway! :)

Your photos manage to convey the magic of this chawan, really a beauty.

Alright, I just can't wait for my new chawan to arrive; so, I just have to say,
I have one of Cory's masterpieces on the way! :lol:

I am so excited I can hardly sit still.

As soon as it arrives, I will share pics.

Cheers!

I bought this chawan by Ontario potter Steve Irvine last month when I was in eastern Canada. The Jonathon Bancroft-Snell Gallery had an exhibition of his chawan-s in their front window - including this beauty!

Normally I don't go for bright colours... but the raspberry tones beguiled me :)
