Sweet it looks like Kiragi meets Tenmoku! I really wish the Internet allowed us to reach out and touch the items in pictures.... I really want to know what the surface of that chawan feels like.

OK....... now for something completely different for this old wabi-cha woodfirer....... going for some "in your face" good ole' American flash.......

This American-style raku Chawan is headed off to the 2013 MunGyeong South Korea Chasabal (teabowl) Competition. 11.9 cm x 12.3 cm x 9 cm 440 grams. Formed by the traditional red-raku rough pinching and then carving technique.

First of all and most importantly, the honor of having people who really know something about teabowls (the judges in Korea....potters and tea people) let you know "ya' done good" :wink: .

Second...... the piece goes into the MunGyeong Ceramics Musuem's permenent collection.

Third........ a paid trip (airfare, lodging, meals, and other stuff) to South Korea for a week the following year. (And treated kinda' like royalty when there :wink: .)

I won the Silver Prize in the 2012 MunGyeong Chasabal Competition....... so was invited there again this year.... but I was invited to present two separate lectures at the Yixing Ceramic Art and Culture Festival in China and unfortunately the dates conflict. So I'll be in Yixing then.

I am HOPING that I'll get invited back NEXT year since I couldn't go this year. And also hoping that this teabowl "makes the cut".

Actually there is glaze on it. It is an American style raku piece ...so the exterior copper and cobalt bearing glaze in this case is heavily reduced.. .... which results in the purples, blues, reds, and copper lusters you see here. It is a dry matte to semi-matte surface. The guchi (lip) area is the glossiest part of the exterior surface. There are also some small grey to black areas of unglazed carbon-impregnated clay...and the kodai is unglazed.

Because it is intended for tea use, no toxic combustibles were used, and it is only lightly post-firing reduced. And I clean them well.

The interior is a clear semi-gloss glaze (for whisking purposes).

best,

Well said John, sometimes such support is more precious then gold.

Thanks for this example of functional weststyle raku, I like it very much.
Was it gas or wood raku kiln?
