Thank you, Stentor.Stentor wrote:Beautiful, Chip. I love Deishi's work. What's the size on the kyusu? Looks smallish for a Hagi kyusu.
The Kashun pieces are nice as well. The yunomi looks very "grippy" and I bet the flared lip makes it comfortable to drink from. Nice balance of form and function.
I agree that a cylindrical yunomi hast to be filled to 1/2 at least, otherwise it just doesn't feel right for some reason. With more tapered vessels it's less of an issue. It's all subjective, though, and occasionally I will drink a small amount from a large yunomi.
The wan dwarfs the kyusu a bit, it is probably close to 300 ml, 10 ounces. Maybe more. This time, I brewed a little less than 50 ounces, so it was certainly less than half full.
The Kashun Yunomi is very nice to hold and sip tea from.
