some tea bowls which i attribute to all the guys/girls who post on this forum.

there is a little of all of you in them.

they have names.



winter is first

it is given this name for the Conservative shape and lip.

Image

Image

i guess you know spring the cup for now. it has a more open shape and lip like now.

Image

Image

and summer with the hot boring days just as this cup. it more than likely won't get used that much. there isn't that much to the shape and lip of this one.

Image

Image

then comes fall and the gathering thus the gathered shape and lip


Image

Image


and all together as the year

Image

thank you for watching and please tune in on the next post. until then have a good day.

wow, "spring" is fantastic. I particularly like the grey traveling spirals around the bottom of the cup, very nice work!

I love winter and summer :D All of them are great, though - I am just viscerally drawn to those two. Are they actually purple or is that how the color got rendered? I *heart* purple. :D
