Excellent news....! Now the question is who (singular) or who (plural)...? Hmmmmmmm.
"Something new ... something old."

Two clues for two pieces of the puzzle that is now beginning to come into focus.

'like a phoenix'

Petr Novak has called some of his unglazed bizen-like pots 'Phoenix' pots,

and ash creates much of the lovely finish effects in Bizen-ware, so will these be Bizen-style Kyusus by a still-to-be-guessed artisan?

That would be "something new" ... but not this round!

I'll go back to my idea of a father and son offering. The Sou family was already nixed, but we never quite got a no response on the Shibuya clan. Another possibility could be the Notoumi clan. But that quickly exhausts my knowledge of father-son teams, or at least ones that we've discussed previously.

Interesting approach. But not this time. :twisted:

How about an old form or shape combined with a new glaze or technique? Or vice versa? :D

Focus on origin.
