So Chip, when are we going to get a $5k chawan SO?
As soon as we all get together and group buy Mega Millions/Powerball ... and win realllly big.
So how about a $5k Picasso? Just cultural differences/values perhaps as in the west the perception of ceramics is quite different than that in many parts of the east...... not passing judgement here on whether Tsujimura's chawan are worth $X Y or Z, however I think that it should be recognized, Powerball aside, SO's aside, that different cultures place different values on their respective "art" works.
I may have put a laughing face on my question, but I was not completely joking. I've had discussions w/ Chip before about a chawan SO (okay, maybe not of $5k caliber).
Of course, I've always valued the connection I feel to a piece, or an artist's style, over the actual cost...
