Consolation bidders (non winners) will be given the opportunity to apply their bid to their top pick(s) from the remaining Phase 2 (20) pieces ahead of the general offering. All 20 are beautiful, but there are always ones that really catch our eyes.


When will this start?

Phew... a really great offering. I hope you've recovered from the flurry of activity, Chip?

You've referred to this offering as an accident of an accident. Did the parentage somewhere along there derive from a namako parentage? (or whatever the 'sea cucumber' style is called)

Yes, the original accident occured on an unusual prototype shape for a new Sea Cuke, the resulting accident was mind blowing for reasons that will remain a well kept secret for now!

This prototype did become the shape of what later became the shape of Phase 2 pieces.

Yamane Seigan is still trying to replicate this original accident for a future SO ... after 3 failed attempts for SO 15.

Thus Sendai is an accident of an accident ... so to speak.

Yes, pretty recovered! Maybe another tea??? :mrgreen:

Nice showing! I forgot all about this until just now, but the limited ed 5 went beyond my budget anyways. :) Information on the remaining 15 forthcoming?

My Hagi sendai just arrived! :D

It is very pretty! It reminds me of melted chocolate chip ice cream.
