Wow thanks for those posts Chip. I really like this artist a lot. I'm really glad to see him doing so well on AN. Seems there's a wide range on there now with steady sales (Not all you it seems
). I really like the stubby spouts and the wide handle. Often I find that handles can be just a touch too small for me on some kyusu-s and actually they don't need to be longer just a touch fatter. How do these feel in the hand? they look superb.
Those pots look great in a set like that. Any plans for more?
I got this pot today. 1 week to the UK and didnt pick up customs charges as I picked economy
Its an incredible piece. The attention to detail is sublime and in a different league to the cheaper pieces I've handled by this artist. As soon as I got it out of the box it just felt perfect and right. I don't always get that with high end pots (one of the gambles of buying online) but its lovely when it instantly clicks as soon as you pull it out the box and mime pouring. Akira Hojo sent me about 8 detailed pictures when I expressed my interest. Which helps a lot but its nothing like that first time you actually handle something.
