Here is a bowl with a very obvious face.

And here is a chawan that was a little more difficult.

I really like the Bizen one! The Kutani one had some crazing that I didn't notice in its auction photos...

Wow, thank you for the explanation and the gorgeous photos. It lines up with what I'd guessed, but it's nice to have an expert opinion! And I love that Kutani-yaki chawan--I've looked at so many of them where the decorative elements are poor/indifferently painted. By comparison, yours looks gorgeous. :)

Beautiful chawan Fuyou.

Iannon, Suzuki's oilspot cups are really amazing. Sometimes, I think their form is a bit too symmetrical, but the glaze is always stunning !

Hallo Fuyou, it's interesting, but I have one doute, why it has to decide which is the face to the owner of the bowl, or the host of the tea ceremony. What function does this decision?. Greetings.

David R, thank you very much.

hopeofdawn, thank you very much. I wouldn't say my opinion is expert, this is just what I gathered from tea lessons and reading :).

In a tea ceremony, the face of the bowl should be presented to the guest, and the guest should not drink from the face of the bowl. This is a sign of respect to the maker of the bowl, as well as to the guest and host (respectively). That is why it is important to determine which side is the face.

it is VERY symmetrical! but also quite beautiful as well I agree. this cup ..the clay..seems like its iron itself. very heavy/dense..you can maybe tell by the picture of the foot there. The other Suzuki on its way seems just as symmetrical as well!

Ah, it's very interesting, is as if aesthetics had an important role?

I present my new tea corner with new acquisitions, cups, full and empty pots, awaiting the arrival of new leaves. I have also bought to very useful tools, a thermometer and a timer.

I also made my first creations inspired by the tea leaves that will give shelter to wet leaves when they have given us its treasure.

No, not clay, it is a modeling paste that dry with air, so it is not the clay itself that it is cooked.

After cooling I gave it layers of paint and fixacril so to can be used liquids.

I think that "la pasta de modelar" is not the same as "modeling paste". :wink:
