I just had my first teaware loss. A fine summer chawan, full of character.
I find myself for the first time in my life grieving for clay pieces.
Does anyone experience such heartbreaking feel when a piece accidentally slip from your hands and meet the hard floor fate?
What are the proper procedures for a broken chawan? Do i wrap in the cloth it came with and place in the signed box? Does a shoebox is acceptable in case the chawan didnt come with a box? Do I sprinkle matcha over it in the final goodbye to the trash can?
How long do I wait to buy a new one?
I cant help but wonder if all the tea i've been drinking is starting to affect me in unusual ways.
