Here is a unique opportunity for those on the east coast to sit in with a few masters of Chatou, works for Japanese tea ceremony in the form of a workshop to be held on 3/14 at the ceramics department at Harvard. Japanese artists Suzuki Goro and Tsujimura Shiro will be joining American masters Jeff Shapiro and Richard Milgrim. Hopefully I can make it as well.....

iannon,

If you'd care to e-mail me through my website I have something here for you that you'd expressed interest in at an earlier date. :D

Apologies for taking so long in getting back to you....

I call these "hand pots" as they are basically shaped like a small bowl in which I've squished in one side to make it fit one's hand. I had a lot of fun with these and plan on doing another series soon..

Thanks,
R

Thanks Chip,

They run around 175-200ml.... I was thinking sencha or hiyazake when working on them however I might scale down a few next time round.

For those of you makers/artisans on TC, if you wish to donate work for auction to help Japan, Ayuni Horie is coordinating a nationwide event to help raise funds. She can be reached at ayumihorie@gmail.com or through her web site http://www.ayumihorie.com.

I will be making multiple donations is this effort to, in some small way, ease the suffering of the people in Japan during these very trying times.

I kindly ask you to please do what you can to help.
Best wishes from Boston,
Rob
