Quite a page of showing off!

Great moon cups Hopeofdawn!

Those are amazing domestic finds Lerxst.

You have made Chris' cup a star debunix.

Tearrific Hagi Beaker. I am not familiar with this artisan. Looks like a sizable hobin?

Nice Hokujo cup to go with your new kyusu Alex.

I forget Adam, who is that artisan? Love the glaze on that one.

Pretty cool Mrs. Woozl-Yaki, Mr. Woozl!

Whew ... and we are coming to the end of this chapter of the show off topic. Thanks for "showing off!"

Got the 150ml Hokujo Tea Cup from artisticnippon.com and thought I'd just take my own picture.

I just got the idea to drink tea out of this large bizen guinomi. Worked pretty well! :D

It's not a pot or a cup but I didn't know where else to post this.

Oni Arare Tetsubin with fukuro tsuru by Kunzan

Holds 1.8 liters, 60.8 ounces. This is where all my tea begins, HOT WATER, I have upgraded from a smaller tetsubin to this one and I am ever so glad I did. This kettle really is a piece of art, I love the sound it makes when it is heating on the burner, and yes you can really taste a difference in the water. Does it make tea taste better? Well it certainly brings out some more character and adds and great emphasis to the finish. plus the water stays hot for a LONG time.

Image

great attention to detail, this is true craftsmanship!
Image

Here you cans see the mushi kui or "bug bite marks" this is a special feature for kettles with hollow handles.
Image

and of course it has picked up the initial rust, it is too early for scale to have developed.

I am too contented with my electric kettles to justify investing in such a lovely tetsubin--it deserves to go where it will be loved and used properly.

I just posted a few more views of new teawares from Petr Novak here in his topic, including this lovely shiboridashi

Image

and more of this subtle beauty by Shawn McGuire is in the Greenwood Studios topic, along with my first Raptor!

I had been admiring the work of this potter for a while, waiting for just the right piece....and then this feathery, shimmery, marvelously drippy cup appeared, and though it is small, it just perfectly holds the contents of my Petr Novak shiboridashi:

Image

Feathery

Image

Drippy

Image

Psychedelic

Image

The drips are crystal clear inside

Image

The feathery red looks lovely against the pale green interior

Image

So happy to have found this piece, and want to give the appropriate credit: Mago's ebay listing says it is by "ceramicist name" Yoshi/3rd Touichi (real name Yoshiki Yamane).

What does 'ceramicist name' indicate here? And would it be more proper to credit it to Yoshi, the 3rd Touichi or Yoshiki Yamane?

I just love this style. I was just lucky enough to go and visit her kiln when I was in Japan a couple of months ago, and even took a ceramic class (I made a yunomi and a rice bowl which should be fired soon) :)

Your photos are incredible as always.

About your question, I think the potter name is just her professionnal name, like a novelist or a journalist could have. She is the thrid artist to run this kiln after her late husband (2nd toichi) passed away, and his father before him. As she is a very simple and kind lady, you could refer her work as Yoshiko Yamane's.

Beautiful cup and intimidating photography skills, debunix.
In a way, the quality of the pictures you take kind of keeps me from posting more pictures myself since mine are just poorly composed, crappy phone pictures :)

I like Yoshi's work as well. I see that I'm probably going to have to try to outbid some of you guys in the future :mrgreen:
