HAMADA Tomoo-san Workshop
at New Hampshire Institute of Art


Tomoo-san, grandson of Living National Treasure Hamada Shoji, gave another (we had him there in 2009 too) great workshop at my college a few days ago. Here are the pictures on my Facebook page for the Teaware Artisans and anyone else here who is interested:

No problem, Andrzej. Tomoo-san is a great guy and an awesome artist. He got his grandfather's genes.

iannon,

:lol: :lol: :lol: Yeah... the professional pottery community is small ...and I've been in it for 40+ years. I know Jeff quite well. Thanks for the note.

Jeff taught on the continuing education faculty at New Hampshire Institute of Art for many years. Plus was very involved in the NH Potters Guild. And when I did a wood kiln building workshop for the Potters Guild, Jeff's studio property was the site for the new community kiln.

He makes some darn nice pots.

Summer NHIA 2001 Making Handbuilt Chawan Course
Chanoyu at New Hampshire Institute of Art


Once again I was teaching a seminar type course called "Making Handbuilt Chawan". The 7 students participating in the class made a series of bowls specific to actual tea ceremony use (as opposed the the more usual American casual "toss off" of the whole teabowl concept). They utilized pinching and carving to form them, they were glazed, and gas fired to Orton cone 10.

As part of the final critique of their work, we held a very infomal tea ceremony, which is more correctly maybe called 茶会 or Chakai rather than Chanoyu. We did only usucha. We used the 立礼 ( Ryurei) style of ceremony as the basis for the temae, which is suited for sitting at western tables and chairs.

All of the chawan used were made by the students. Everyone got a chance to make and serve tea in their own bowl.

The furo was one of my pieces, the chagama was a Meiji one from my collection, the natsume was a contemporary Kyoto lacquer piece from my collection, and the chashaku was a contemporary Tsugaru lacquered one from my collection. The hishaku and chasen were from my collection and were "general pieces" brough home from Japan (nothing really special). The futaoki was a Tokoname piece, and the mizusashi and kensui were mine also.

So a few more potters now have a little understanding of tea ceremony and teawares (see page 3 in this thread for last summer's images). Always a fun course to teach.

best,

TreasureHunt Treasure 3 from John Baymore. A beautiful wan. More photos will be in John's TeawareArtisan topic momentarily.

It is thrown, and wood fired. Smooth white stoneware body. 8.5 cm dia and 7 cm h. Weight 160 grams. This piece I do not have the kiln firing record for, but I think it was the summer 2010 firing. Glaze both interior and out is American Shino but it is fired mainly in oxidation, so I am thinking from chamber 4 which is where I do that mostly (for oribe glazes mainly). It has substantial flyash over the shino glaze and some nice flashing on the exposed clay foot.


Winner TBD and announced later!!! :twisted:
