Karuizawa yaki

Postby rdl » Feb 26th, '13, 23:10

i bought this tea cup in the mount asama area of karuizawa. i didn't get to see the kiln or maker, just a small display of tea ware in a road side fruit and vegetable shop. the kiln's name is Asama Kibou-an. in spite of the appearance, it is a smooth glaze and has a bit of weight to it. the size is 2.5" tall x 3.5" wide.
i labeled it Karuizawa yaki but i am not sure if that is correct. this was one of 4 local yakimono styles i came across, but the only one i bought from. a good reason to return.
i hope you enjoy looking, thanks.

That's a beautiful cup! :D Any chance we could see the inside as well?

thank you! i will wait for natural lighting over the weekend and post an interior view.
i would like to know more about these small regional, local kilns, as the six ancient kilns and the big three are much easier to find information about.

Thanks for posting the picture! :) Lovely motion in the glaze, yet light enough that I'm betting you can still appreciate the color of the tea. 8)
