... ummm, only ONE Oribe Phase 2 remains. :shock:

Not sure this second which, but it will be either 13 or 17. Both have at least one drippie! :mrgreen:

HURRY! :idea:

Still one Oribe available. It is amazing how often the last one lingers waiting for a new home. :cry:

Going to try and send emails out yet tonight ...

BTW, most pop picks, 2-5 of the selections below showed up on all 16 first hour lists (their top five picks). :shock:

And it is officially a sell out! Thanks everyone for participating or even looking.

These will be exciting pieces to hold and sip tea from ...










Next SO ... well, there are always irons in the fire so to speak. But we can take a breather for a couple days ... OK, just kidding. But shooting for a month +/- Some exciting projects in the works.

Thanks Bowman and everyone else.

OK, all emails have been sent to participants. PLEASE check to make sure you received your email from me.

And everyone who emailed a request to me prior to the sold out announcement will be receiving an Oribe.

Whew ...

OK, look for another email Friday (today) or Saturday which will include your Hagi total, shipping options, and information I need from you.

THANKS!!!!!! :mrgreen:

hopeofdawn wrote:... since none of us have seen these pieces in person, but I was wondering--there seems to be quite a bit of difference in color between the photos with the cups alongside their boxes, and the cups by themselves. I was wondering which was more true to life--the blue-green color of the oribe glaze in the shots that include the tie boxes, or the more yellow-green color in all the other close-up shots?

The vagaries of color on the internet being what they are, I can't tell which pictures are closest to the real life versions. Any thoughts?


I am happy to report with personal first (in-)hand ("real life")experience that these are indeed deep forest green, lustrous, with a hint of iridescence ... and multi-hued.

To answer your question, on the color wheel, this would lean towards the blue versus the yellow in its multi-hued spectrum! :mrgreen: There is no inkling of yellow present.

OR, or in a word STUNNING!

I thought you said earlier, and it seemed from the photos, that these are a more "matte" sort of color... What's the breakdown?

I think I said gloss, but not high gloss. And satiny, not matte. So, they have areas of both I would say. I would say my interpretation of the photos was pretty spot on. :mrgreen:

And did I mention, they are STUNNING!
