My new Hagi (via Victoria) filled with Fukamushi Sencha Supreme. I absolutely love the feel of it and watching all the little crackles form.

Looking good CK! I like to think that dark clay spot is shaped like an angel's wing.

Oh, ahh, new hagi.
Chip, I love that last blue one on the previous page!
Victoria, your new bowl looks like it would be joy to hold, I love the grooves in the side of a bowl!
CK, how nice that you got angel wings to remind you of your sweet angel kitty.

Shira Oni Hagi Chawan

by robbie_olive » May 25th, '09, 22:08

Here is another Hagi chawan, this time from the famous Yamane Seigan. This is one of his bigger chawans measuring 15cm (6" ) wide X 13cm (4.75") high. This chawan also has a "Mei" or title called "Hyo-ga" or "glacier". This chawan is best served with koicha (thick matcha tea). I have used it once at a formal tea party and the matcha looked exquisite in it! It cost me a small fortune, but it was well worth it!

I have been holding out, this is our Sea Cucumber glaze chawan by Yamane Seigan. In person,
it is simply the most impressive chawan in da house! I will go so far as to say it is spectacular.
The greens are so deep and varied.

Brilliant!
I've checked these "cuke" glazed items.
I suspect they are even cooler in person.

Well not all is expensive. But these are by masters of the craft.
That's why.
