I posted this gyokuro Hagi set recently in the show off topic, but post a few here for 2 reasons, one a warning and two because this is the Hagi topic of all Hagi topics. The set is by Zuiho Ono, found several translations on his name. I have been told by another vendor that he is highly collectable in Japan, and I made a very good buy for this 30 year old set.

First the warning. This particular set is supposed to be around 30 years old according to the seller Katsuragi, original box. So, since I am currently displaying the set in this box, I should check it out. Here, the "shelf" that the yuzamashi (water cooler) was sitting on was attached on one side only. Yikes. I will be more careful in the future. These boxes are mostly just glued together and we should expect glue failure over time.

Not reiterating my position.

I actually do have a thickly glazed piece, although smooth.


Oops, sorry V, I totally forgot about that one :oops: Thanks for posting it again in this thread. It really does have a thick, albeit, smooooth glaze! 8)

And I figured you were 'always looking" :wink:

Nope, ebay.

A new Chawan, the color is richer in person. Seigan Yamane Retsu Chawan Hagi (loquat glaze rough sand). From "MAGOKORODO".

It is such fun seeing all the Hagi pieces posted here...they are all so unique and interesting.

My one and only Hagi piece...rainbow color with notched foot by Seigan. These pictures don't do it justice...it is big and thick and colorful and wonderful!

Here it is:

This takes me way back... something from the seventies, I think? Oh yeah:

(I joke, but I love. The guinomi AND its foot are adorable!)


Not to change the topic - but did people really wear these - and manage not falling over ?

They did indeed wear them. I'm sure that at least a few did fall over.

My seventh-grade history teacher used to wear platform shoes. I think they were a good 4" to 5" high. He was a tall man to begin with, so when he was wearing his platforms, he was pretty impressive. Used to remind me of Boris Karloff's Frankenstein in the way he stiffly and carefully tottered around.
