I was, too, to an extent. I just couldn't get a good shot of it, there was not enough light that day. But that balcony rail is broader than it looks.

I did upload a few more pics here

Took a mid-afternoon break today for a little creek-side matcha. It was a beautiful day here, ahhh life is good.

I acquired this chawan about a year ago at local Empty Bowls event. For those of you who are not familiar, potters donate bowls which are then sold with a lite meal of soup and bread. All proceeds go to our local food bank. I was lucky enough to stumble on this chawan, which I believe is salt-fired, possibly soda. It's kind of hard to tell. Bowls donated are left anonymous without a signature, so I don't know who the maker is. I assume it was made by one of our Grad. students at Syracuse University.

Looks especially delicious with the streaks of matcha in the bottom.

A charming bowl in a beautiful setting!

Wish I could enjoy my matcha outdoors, too. Someday!

Gorgeous!
I particularly like the full bowl shot with that wonderful foam glowing in the sunlight.
What a setting - awesome!

Wow, very lovely! Ray Morales has really been producing some unique and gorgeous glazes lately, I have to admit--I have three of his pieces already, and am contemplating another. Love the foot on this piece--the glaze looks like surf rolling up on the beach ....

So now you're hoping someone might solve this for you, right? :wink: :mrgreen:

Even though the setup is Product Photography 101 the photos on his site make all his stuff look great.
