I guess it is safe to say, no. :mrgreen:

Eiichi was not satisfied with his last firing of our Commissions. He remains committed to this project despite his ever increasing popularity and demand for his works. Last I heard, the pieces were "made" and ready for firing. And could be finished at any time ...

FYI, each cycle of making a new piece or SO can take 1-2 months for this kiln, so a failure means another 1-2 months. Just the nature of the biz. I learned this in waiting for longgggg periods of time for around 1/4 of the Hagi SOs. Part of the reason for this is these are small runs of very limited and often brand new pieces. So we are in a manner of speaking on the cutting edge, but the process can be slow at times.

Also I have noticed, the creative artisans are often too optimistic. They say the "end of the month" when in reality it is mid next month. :mrgreen:

For Eiichi, I hope he continues to work on the cutting edge that has created a bit of a sensation for his works here on TeaChat with pieces like The ROCK and Snowdrifts.
