yes, I couldn't resist this quintessential summer form, this bowl has a lot of "spirit" to it. I am not actually a fan of the classic Kazuwa red glaze, but have always loved the forms. This fit the mood perfectly, nice and open with a glaze that just suggests coolness while I ride out the remainder of these hot summer days.
p.s. the Kazuwa you posted recently has fantastic shaping you can really see the artists hands at work.
