Thanks to everyone here .
Lucie Rie and Hans Cooper were friends and encoraging each others with their own works. The beauty of their shapes , so clear and precise and indeed keeping movement is just .... I have no words because it is so great.
Hamada and Leach have developped a great lign of thinking about the traditional ceramic , like a little revolution and has pull ceramic out the making-pot to a art standing . I like the freshness of the movement of their pieces and the brush appilication of glaze or underglaze. Such persons are important because we just can keep these works and share them in our heart and ....go on with our own way with that humility...

Some more shino, oribe and mix-glazes. I work with a few glazes one over the others for 3 or 4 levels . Sometimes I put a clay before first fire at 980 ° and then 2 or 4 glazes for second fire at 1280°.Soemtimes it is quite good result but... sometimes and glaze are not compatibles and they react : thes split undr , making big "hole" on the bowl and coming down on the kiln ,....

One bowl and its inside with a red touch due to ohata glaze under shino.

I have a PM in to her which she has not picked up for several days. I have been to her site before which is accessible through her blog with is linked on her profile. I think you then just email her with inquires as to the bowl you are interested in. (I don't see the current pieces listed though)

Holy smoke... these are some of the most beautiful glazes I have ever seen. Just what I needed... another expensive thing to crave! But truly, I really love your work. Absolutely fantastic. One of those big yunomi with the turquoise green should really live in my home... oh geeze, I need smelling salts, I am feeling faint. :shock:
