Just unwrapped my Shawn parcel, oh boy, I love this stuff. Really handsome, handy, toasty shib and two lovely cups. The "flying saucer" extended-foot yunomi is spectacular, very warm and melty glaze and luscious rich color, and that little rim just finds its place so comfortably in hand; the bowl is elegant and earthy. It's a beautiful trio and very autumnal together - blue-greys to creamy whites to deep rusts to vivid cinnamon, yum.
This is very fine work and many thanks, Shawn!
If I keep this up I'm going to have to come out of retirement. "I am but a simple monk, quietly enjoying my peaceful, hermetic life with just my good dog, my dogeared books, my battered zafu and my humble cup of tea. Oh, and my little teapot, um teapots, um various brewing vessels, um burgeoning collection of beautiful tea-related vessels ... "
So, Shawn, when's the next firing... ?
