Like a phoenix ...

Rising from the ashes... This sounds a bit like noborigama / dragon kiln work... After all, those kilns literally "rise," since they're built into hills... :idea:

茶鉄? :D

Heh, anyway, let's see. Not wood-fired, not bizen, not hagi. Not Bill, Petr, Yamane, or Yamada.

How about the Shibuya clan? I'm still wondering whether the something old, something new comment is about the pottery itself, or the person (or people), or whether it's a clue at all. :lol:
