Thank you for the post.
Those Ewen Henderson chasen eating bowls are quite nice and fairly priced.

Akiko Hirai's work is beautiful and quite mature.

I met her in Korea at the Mungyeong Tea Bowl Festival. She was exhibiting next to Phil Rodgers, another well known British potter.

Today's MatchaWan :D (new name, but tea's the same)

by Pig Hog » Aug 15th 15 12:52 pm

Today is freshly opened matcha matsu no midori from maiko in igayaki.

I found this matcha to have a very rich aroma but is light and delicate in the mouth. Oishii desu, as they might say in Japan.

Here is one of my latest purchases. It's an Edo period Kuro Raku Chawan with a very nice small Kintsugi repair. On the pictures I just prepared a Koicha from Koyamaen. :wink:

Lovely piece, and lovely photograph. I really like the contrast of the koicha with the bowl. :)

Very, very nice!
Kinda have to say, the Kintsugi repair reminds me a little of Harry Potter's scar. Makes me wonder if Voldemort attacked that bowl?!

I wasn't sure if this is a good chawan when I saw it the first time. But somehow I felt in love with its very well done gintsugi (silver) repair. Some areas were replaced using "alien" parts. It's a technique called Yobitsugi.

So after all I think it was a pretty good decision, wasn't it? :)

A beautiful Ao Karatsu chawan from the Momoyama / early Edo period. I think to know who sold you this beauty! :wink:

Ps. The gintsugi repair is plain or decorated with (silver and/or gold) flakes? Asking just for curiosity! :)

Regards.
