Good to know... I am assuming these kind of golf ball screens are the hardest to make?
they are actually stamped out of clay with a machine, pretty easy to do. it does take some skill to attach them properly. there are a few types of screens used on most japanese pots.
ball screen- like you have above
ceremesh or sesame screen- also stamped in clay, then fitted onto the pot
direct or wall- carved directly into the pot
stainless steel mesh- an actual piece of stainless steel mesh fitted into the pot.
the merits and shortcomings of all these various types have been debated and expound upon in great detail on this forum, a search should provide you with a number of topics.
I'm off to search now, Thanking you very kindly!
