Phase 2 Hagi SSO Sendai. Relief for Japan.

See Phase 1 for some added information!
http://www.teachat.com/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=15663

As mentioned previously, Phase 2 consists of 20 standard footed examples of Sendai. These pieces are quite varied. Same glaze "accident of an accident."

White with black speckles and golden accents! Very striking.

Some show a lot of "color," some show a little, some are somewhere in between ... and some have amazing drips! But they are all beautiful. Choosing is going to be difficult!!! In a good way ... :mrgreen:

And $25 to $35 from each sale will go to the Japan relief effort!

As with all SO's, you will PM your choices to me, AFTER 6 pm Eastern USA time today, Monday 5/23. But also asap! I will set a deadline to receive PMs of 24 hours, however the sooner you get this to me, the easier my job will be to complete the selection process.

PLEASE INCLUDE AT LEAST 3 CHOICES, THOUGH 4 OR 5 would be BETTER. Selection will be via a rather convoluted lottery that I feel is the fairest way.

Here is my photobucket album for these 20 pieces of Phase 2. Prices are below. Shipping information is a few posts above!

***Notice the numbers for the pieces are generally right to left in Japanese fashion. For instance #11, #10 below.

In photobucket, I have a title for each pictures that includes the item numbers in their proper order. PLEASE double check to make sure you are telling me your correct choices. #14, #15 are the exceptions!***

Prices vary within a $10 range of 55-65 USD. As stated previously, $25-35 of each Phase 2 piece sold goes to the relief effort in Japan.

*You can opt to pay a higher price which would in turn, dollar for dollar, increase the amount going to the relief effort, just state your price in your PM along with your choices!

... and now we focus on Phase 2!

Good luck to everyone in picking from these beauties. I have for now given up, they are all amazing! Maybe after some Yutaka Midori I will be able to pick!

OK, back with Yutaka Midori in hand!

Phase 2 is now live. You can PM your picks to me anytime before 6 pm Tuesday, Eastern USA time. However SOONER IS BETTER!

Please read the post at the top of this page for details. Remember, picks will be based upon a lottery system. However since these are all amazing, everyone will be a winner!

OK, I split Phase 2 from the original Phase 1 topic since I felt this topic/Phase 2 was getting lost.

You can review a lot of added information on this very special Sendai SSO here:
http://www.teachat.com/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=15663

All moneys collected above 30 USD each will be aplied to the Relief for Japan. So please check out the Sendai in my photobucket and pick one (or two if available). Many thanks to Magokorodo for their help in making this SSO for Japan possible.

I think a lot of people may have already spent their tea budget, like me. Spring new harvest spending is rough. :) These are truly lovely pieces though. I hope the $1000 mark is hit! I wish I had the money just so I could tack on a donation. :(

I am not too concerned, yet. :mrgreen:

There is a lack of urgency since everyone has 24 hours to pick for the lottery.

Speaking of which, about 6.5 hours to go.

I know that feeling... I think my wallet is a few degrees away from spontaneously combusting from how fast money is flying out of it... :lol:

Less than an hour to go!

Phase 2 is over! :mrgreen: Thanks everyone!

And now the fun begins ... please be patient. Everyone who submitted a Sendai request PM to me will get one.

By far, the most pop ones were 10, 12, 14, 17. These consistently showed up on all but a few lists received. There were other very popular selctions as well.

FYI, 22, 23, 24, and 25 are currently the only pieces available. So, if interested, please PM me asap! First come, first served for these remaining few. These are at the reduced price of $55, 25 of which will go directly to our Relief for Japan effort.

While the giant Hagi PotteryLottery ball is spinning and spinning, I think there is enough time for tea!
