Thanks John! It's hard to have an irrational addiction and not be able to do it. Here is a matching chawan. Hopefully it's not too annoying of me to post my work here. I'll eventually out myself as a potter in the tea artist forum.
The outside is covered with an ash glaze which I didn't add enough feldspar to, (oops) but is still came out to my liking, albeit completey different than intended. The inside is a faux nuka, which I may try adding ash to, to promote melting.

Those are nice forms. And that exterior glaze is just fine as it is.

You know, I still have that chawan gave me after the workshop you took with me here at the studio.

best,

Wow! Thanks for the kind words! John, I remember that bowl too. Blue slip drips with my finger prints covered with nuka (if I remember correctly)? That workshop was a blast and is a great memory. Tim is living is Mexico City with his wife btw.. and still paints but doesn't pot. Your studio was/is perfectly beautiful. Maybe that ice cream bowl wasn't too terrible if you still have it? :) I have some nice pots I brought out west which were fired in your kiln.

Just got these yesterday, from http://www.zishateapot.co.uk/ the cup surprised me, as I had only ordered the pot originally, I guess they just threw it in, or maybe all pots come with a cup?

It's my first pot so I'm getting used to the size, especially the cup which is no bigger than the standard shot glass.

A colleague kindly gifted me her mother's chawan (and a whisk.) As she taught tea ceremony, I imagine it has been used quite a bit. We have drunk tea together and I find it touching to have one of her pieces.

I am ignorant of teaware, especially japanese teaware. Any comments are welcome.

You lucky duck. It looks like a Karatsu to me. One of the styles taken from Korea. Amazing energy to that piece, infused with love.

Thanks, B. In the few visits to the US, she has always come across as an extremely tender person. Very traditional. The piece is quite smooth to the touch. Something how an item can acquire personality.

You got yourself a treasure there Bio. Wow! Have not seen such a beautiful daiwan besides Brandon's. So full of spirit. How's the weight of it in your hand? Chance of taking a pic when it's filled with hot water, pls :) thanks again for sharing ~ T

Today, while I had the camera out to shoot some tea, I also got in a first session with my newest cup, a 'spring galaxy' cup from Tetsuaki Nakao, shown here with a petite 'summer galaxy' guinomi:

I'd been watching Mago's ebay listings for a long time, hoping for a green cup that was as richly green as my little blue one is blue. This one has some very deep green on the interior:

Image

and at the base:

and a lovely translucent patch with an almost lavender cast for contrast (and a seriously odd but beautiful swirly highlight artifact):

Image

and of course it simply glows with tea in it:

And it feels as good in the hand as it look on the page. Happy camper, me.

Do they feel as good in the hand as they look to the eye?
