Pretty "quiet" compared to many of the chawan here, but I like this one from the 70s:

I like to think a traditional chawan is anything but quiet they have so much to say to the hand, the lip, to the eye and especially to the rest of the teaware in the tea room. live up!!!

xmfi, I personally enjoy the so called traditional quiet chawan. Perhaps it from having studied them, used them, created them as an artist. Compiled with years of handling during museum work, I find they have a lot to say. In the hands, against the lips, to the eye, and also lively conversation in the tea room with the rest of the tea ware. ( even if your "tea room" only has a chasen and a chashaku). of course I do enjoy a LOUD chawan as well! Live up!!!

(Sorry to post essentially the same thing, computers, gotta love 'em!)
