I already own several of Bill's pieces incuding a kyusu, numerous yunomi, and some standard handled coffee cups. I also own a mountain wan/yunomi, in his lovely signature turquoise combo.
But these SO pieces... I am loving them! The scalloped are quite different than anything I have from Bill yet, and the mountain pieces are so vibrant, especially the ones in the more rust tones... reminds me of a desert sunset. Yes, I must have one. I'll be getting a yunomi because I love the larger vessels anyway... I like the wans too, but this mountain imagery needs a nice big canvas to show off. Thanks for the great variety of offerings, can't wait to see which ones I get.
Wow, thank you for the kind words!! These did end up sooo nice, exactly like desert sunsets! I have a setting sun in each landscape to play off the mountain composition. These are very rich, and I tried to show how nice they look in the pictures and actually took a second set of pictures because the first didn't flatter them. These pictures are close, even chose an overcast day, but I couldn't get the whitest parts to be the little bit ivory that they have in them, which goes very well with the rust tones. This coarser clay I used in the sets, suggests the desert soil and landscape well. Thank you for noticing what is in these.
