Re: Tetsubin

It took me a couple of years, but i finally managed to find a second chagama that i fancy.

Hope you enjoy. Maker is Seiko Sato. Herons and what i assume to be pine-cones (or maybe armadillos :D ).

Quite the unusual colored hagi by Eiichi Shibuya.. (i'll see if i can get that with phone camera ).
Finally managed to make some photo's :arrow: The crackles are quite subdued - hard to get on photo, that's why they're pretty shiny.

Re: Ode to the Kyusu

That is a really nice pot from Shawn McGuire. How small is it? I haven't seen any like this one on his Etsy page , did you get it several years ago? Hey Victoria. Its 3" round (without the spout and handle), ±115ml and has a ball type filter. I snatched it somewhere around the start of 2015, Shawn ...

Re: A hairline crack

I've always been hesitant to use epoxy or 2 material bonding agents on ceramics i actually use. Never quite comfortable to use something that gets hot and moist and then drinking from it. On the other hand i am comfortable using pieces with kintsugi. Anyone actually know what happens to the epoxy wh...

Re: Tokoname Thread

This is the smaller version however its clearly by the same hand - even without the stamp :D The fun part is that this one is 10.8cm in diameter and 7.9cm high, where the larger one is 12.5 by 7.9 (rounded up). The type of texture of these bowls really reminds me of a plant or tree's root system. Al...

Tokoname Thread

Extra points for chawan and other wares besides kyusu! :) After a lengthy search for the maker of this chawan ( and an identical larger chawan - correction, this is actually the larger one :D ), i found out who was the maker. With much help from samurai Toru. "Tokoname craftsman Tougen Tsuzuki Hisas...
