I've only put 3 steeps of sencha through mine... no cracks showing up yet, though! A lovely wan; playing games with myself to get the amount of tea at the end just right to fill in the non-circular bottom...

I cannot believe how stained my crackles are on mine. Thin or thick glaze, they are all darkening. It sure is a beautiful cup. I am really enjoying it!

There may be no more Sendai left, but if you like the style, you can have a look at other Seigan pieces. Some of his sea cucumber cups look quite alike, even if the form/size won't be the same.

The Sendai was an accident of an accident so to speak.

The original prototype was of a sea cucumber that was done under "reduction" firing. The results were really different and Seigan has been trying to reproduce that for us. He has failed each time so far, unfortunately

The Sendai was one of these attempts that caught my eye. It seems that the Sendai glaze also met with Seigan's approval and has been easy to replicate as it has been popping up ever since on ebay, though the shape is still unique to Sendai.

Still, Sendai was the first ... an accident of an accident. :mrgreen:

Thanks for the warm welcome. I suppose you'd say I'm in the age of discovery, since I only purchased my first Hagi-yaki today (actually from Magokoro-do, this is the piece:

Ohhh, heh, someone had just written me about this piece a day or two ago.

Great first Hagi. I hope it brings you years of TeaJoy!

This yunomi has been on my wish list for a while. Great taste ! :mrgreen:

I'll be interested in some photos of your Arita-yaki pieces if you can. It is not often that we see some on this forum. Maybe we need a dedicated section to motivate people to post some. :wink:

I think I'd feel a little embarrassed facing up against all of the superb craftsmanship I'm seeing so far... :oops: Perhaps I can muster up the courage to post a pic of the yunomi pair I use for entertaining...... :?
