I'm afraid I'm not knowledgeable enough for that tricky one :lol:

But I would be really interested to read someone explaining how they identify these potters based on your cups style .

Thanks for that arts-and-mind game ! :wink:

The Kimura cup is the Tenmoku version he is a intangible cultural property (Mukei Bunkazai) of Kyoto since 1992.
Have a look on YouTube you'll find a cool documentary on Tsujimura ( Takeshi Art Beat)
Not that much to find about Chi Sun-Taek ( various spellings - Ji Soon Taek ) also a human cultural assets of Kyoungki province, Korea. He died in 1992
The Taiwanese potter paste this 楊春生 into the browser and you will get to his blog...
hope this gives you a bit more insight! - Enjoy :)
