I apologize if any of the pictures have a color cast; I'm a little color blind

Really beautiful and thought out set, Pooblah. I am guessing that maybe this was custom made for you by Petr ... and you requested the white interior glazing which is very functional and a striking contrast to the shino. I love how the white runs down the side so seemingly random ... but likely planned.

Thanks :) You are correct. I requested white interiors because I enjoy appreciating the color of the liquor when I drink tea. Even though I'm not very good with colors, drinking tea out of a dark teacup just isn't the same to me.

But matcha in a dark/winter teabowl can be stunning... :mrgreen:

I may have another set coming in a couple months. Something much smaller, for oolongs this time.

Beautiful set Poohblah. I as well enjoy drinking from a white interior cup. Whatever I drink in bizen ware it's hard to tell what colour the liquid is.

Agreed! Though I don't understand why Chip is being so cryptic... :P

Chip is always cryptic.

Nice Petr-yaki, I love the glaze and I too am a fan of white interiors. I've been admiring his stuff for a long time but have never pulled the trigger.

Two wonderful sets, congratulations to Poohblah and Buzz. :) I too prefer light-colored interiors for my teacups, though not often truly white.

Chip is always cryptic.

:shock: Moi? :shock: ... hmmm, I guess only when I have "reason" to be (such as now).

More times than not, I will pick white or whitish interiors for tea viewing (and have purchased and had many cups made with white interiors including Hagi SOs for this expressed reason), but I am less ardent about this than I used to be. I guess after seeing the tea in my cup so many times, it has become less of an overriding priority every time ... :mrgreen:

Having said all that, today started out with Asatsuyu in Hagi SO Tempest which was stunning in the white crackled interior!

I have posted this pot before but the crackles on the inside have developed so nicely I just had to post updated pics:

Wow, really nice and yet still subtle. If you had not linked both before and after images I might not have noticed and taken the tea effect as the original glaze. But the tea effected glaze has more depth and richness. Very nice! :D
