I've been reading here a bit, and looking at tea bowls, etc.
I'm interested in Tea bowls, tea, as an appreciator, explorer, and as a potter, ceramic artist.
I am not as skilled as many of these fine potters whose work I find here, but am inspired by their work.
I have spent some time in Northern Honshu, and if you can tell by my name, I enjoy Japanese Court poetry. Therefore I chose Iwami, from the poem, The sea Of Iwami, by Hitomaro, as my name to use here.
I enjoy Sencha, Bancha, Matcha, and so far have no favorite.
I first had pearl tea as a child, then black teas, and I widened my tea horizons as I grew older, and my time spent in Japan introduced me to green teas, and Genmai cha.
I have a lot to learn and explore, which is exciting, and I feel I will find expertise and suggestions here, and perhaps meet someone in my area to have teas with.
