Ok, this bowl isn't my favorite, but it is my favorite non-hagi chawan (the hagi one is pirctured on the hagi thread). Actually right now it is my only other chawan.
This bowl has lots to look at, so here are 4 pictures of the outside and one of the writing on the inside. It is tough to see in the pictures, but there is gold paint on the rim and in other areas as accent (long red leaves and the "eyeballs").
Does this represent land???
This one looks like eyes with gold pupils...
A bird flying over the sun..
Here's what's written on the inside bottom (sorry for the flash glare!)
(I'm guessing it says "matcha all gone, time to make more").
Mmmmm, now I want a bowl of matcha...
