Cabinet showoff!

by Fuut » Mar 3rd, '14, 08:54

I figured that showing things one by one in the matcha of the day topic is going to take ages, so here's one of my cabinets. I have about 30 storage boxes upstairs waiting to be unpacked, but they're all just sitting there until i get the right furniture of a tea room (its a very small room but it has a sink so its perfect).

Anyway I hope you enjoy seeing the photo's, feel free to add yours!

3 Yunomi and a splendid shino chawan from Shyrabbit, and in the front right a very much so chamfered/carved raku bowl i bought recently.

More pieces from Seigan Yamane, maybe i went overboard a little lately. 2 Caddies in the back that form a nearly brother and sister image (the blue one is slightly wider and higher).

A wide and flat bodied (i think its) Kuro Oribe bowl on the right, behind it a painted chawan by Aya Fukumori. On the left a different type of shino bowl by Masaru Kamei.

I used to have the same problem, and i was always annoyed with how fast the dust settles in cups and bowls. This is much nicer - though i still clean them before use :wink:

That cabinet looks very familiar--I have the same one, I think. :) Though sadly it's not large enough to hold all my teawares, so most of my chawan are scattered artistically on shelves here and there ... TAD strikes again! Gorgeous pieces, though, and I am impressed with your photos--I know from experience it's hard to photograph that cabinet without glass reflections getting in the way. :)

Here's an outdated picture of one of mine (from 2010), a zelkova tea tansu (shorter than it might look from the photo). I have some overflow teaware in a second, bigger, tansu which also houses booze, and also a humidor.

Some nice pots there:) 3 out of 5 wuxing? xianpiao, roubing, xishi as well as some (newish?)xiangxing and qingying. Take some closeups and show them off! :)

Wyardley,

Really nice tansu...very immaculate setup! I really appreciate the aesthetic, especially with the wood floors. Nice humidor as well!

Blessings!
