Dramatic! It's a gorgeous contrast to the tea. Where's it from?

Is it a nodate chawan?



It just looks that way in the pics, it's actually 5" wide.

:shock: It's so hard to judge sizes on the internet. And I have really small hands (or everyone else just has realllllly huge hands?). My chawan is "4.7 inches wide x 3.14 inches high" according to o-cha, and I feel like it is huge.

yeah - I went a little crazy and picked up several pieces from him - great pricing! Totally affordable. My wife picked up this 'black and white' chawan for me for Christmas.
Here's those additional pics for you…

No problem whatsoever!
I appreciate you following your passion and desire.
I look forward to seeing it. :mrgreen:
May the one he creates for you inspire even greater joy than the one I got.

He actually has 1 more, just not on his site. He is sending me pics either Monday or Tuesday so I can decide.

I will post up here of course if I do pick it up.

I purchased this lovely blue chawan from naivemonarch, and it finally made it through customs and the terrible winterstorm(s) in NY.

This is going to be my spare/guest Chawan. I've wanted to share matcha with friends but I don't know how they will feel, germ wise, about sharing teaware. With my guest chawan we can both drink matcha and keep out germs to ourselves :3

Oooo - that's a pretty one.
How big is it? For some reason it looks nodate to me.
Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful. The variegation of the blue glaze is gorgeous--is it Nuka?
