I haven't checked this topic out for awhile - too busy!
But, IMHO, this thread has been quiet for too long!!
Here is a new chawan by Rob Fornell that I am just head over heals in love with - it reminds me of Yosemite, mountain ranges, caves, stalactites and stalagmites, there are eyes, and faces, ...
The Mino style Tengu Chawan:

(Please forgive my extrememly amateurish photography - I think some white balance issues? I don't even know. I tried to remedy, but, oh well.)
Now I've got to have some matcha!!! :D :mrgreen:

Wow, that is beautiful! It really does look like a landscape! And it looks as though you captured it at midday, then at dusk. Great pics, thanks for sharing and congrats!

Thanks Vic!
I adore this chawan.
The lip in its irregularity is so mountain-y.
I wish I could photograph better :? .
There are pink hues fading in and out throughout this piece,
and other amazing nuances that I just haven't captured.
When I saw he'd listed it, I jumped on it immediately and without hesitation (even though my budgetary mind reeled due to all my recent tea-ware purchases - the 5 chawan from shyrabbit, and all the recent TC SO's).
I am glad I took the leap tho.
This one's a stunner to me.
:D

I bet matcha looks amazing in that black and I love the brown streaks spiking down into the black.
Cool.

Hi Fellow Tea-Folk!
Seeker here, your friendly neighborhood chawan/matcha-whore with yet
another chawan.
This is a Kohiki Chawan by the Ronin Ceramurai.

I love chawan and matcha and chadogu!

Cheers to you all!
...and I'd sure like to see your chawan.
I've shown you mine...

hooksie,

I got this one from rikyucha.com - it's the only one I've seen on his site before. I've seen other pieces by Ryuzan Aoki similar to mine on trocadero a few times, though. So check there if you are interested!

This is my favorite Chawan. I named it Pele after the goddess of lava and volcanos for obvious reasons. I love the feel of this chawan and use it every morning. The glaze is really cool. The photo doesn't do it justice.

This is my favorite, maybe on the quite side but it looks so nice in the tea room, made by me, fired in a naboragami for a week, no glaze just ash build up. a lovely red stoneware, pressed a design in the side using ponderosa pine bark, the same wood that would "glaze this bowl, made around early 2004, many times I have heated the water and mixed the tea with this bowl...

Thanks for sharing with us, BSW. I like the natural element to this one. Do you have a site or etsy?

Have you checked this out?
