Re: Hagi

Here's a cup i picked up from Artistic nippon last week. Quite the unusual colored hagi by Eiichi Shibuya.. Quite rough glazing too with some scratches from what i would assume to be the wood firing and very unusual crazing even on the matte blacks (i'll see if i can get that with phone camera and t...

Re: Teaware on trip to Japan

From what i've heard there are plenty of "flea markets" in for instance Kyoto that have fantastic items. Its a dream of mine to one day go there and go through it all. I would suggest keeping eyes out on what the people are selling themselves.

Quite the exquisite brazier

Being auctioned here: https://www.aoijapan.com/flower-vase-kimura-toun Its listed as a flower vase, but it looks more like a brazier so i added it here (feel free to move if deemed wrong place for it), and my pockets aren't nearly deep enough though, and honestly it wouldn't fit my kind of room but ...

I had especially a mizusashi in mind...
Here's one for sale right now, and probably a lot cheaper than a brand new one, but still waay outside my current comfort zone ;)

Re: Would you guys pay this much for a chawan?

Om, Akira Satake chawan, yunomi and guinomi are worth their price and more. He is a master at his craft, as are many others mentioned in TeaForum. To hold a masterpiece in your hand is an elevating experience. Not feeling the vibe though with song tea collection. Victoria, could you name some of th...

Re: Raku

Here's another utsushi (replica), tea bowl by the third Shoraku. The original was made by Koetsu Honami and was named Kaga (he is listed here: https://chano-yu.com/key-person-of-chanoyu/). Now on first appearance this item compared to the original is very flashy, which is linked to what i mentioned ...

Re: Hagi

Time to join in! I'm very lucky to own 2 pieces by Masanao Kaneta (one is a larger piece). The items already shown are gorgeous and i would love to get more but i'm already blessed with 2 items. This is the vase - the top and front reminds me Mt. Fuji but i'm not sure if that was intentional or not ...

Re: Raku

I'm very happy to see some people got inspired to join in! Love the pieces shown, compared to most of my rakuyaki (which is by Sasaki), the dimmer blacks are quite nice, and way different. (Most of), Sasaki's kuro seems to be more shiny. Here's a kasé type raku bowl. I do not know the maker, but it ...

Re: Raku

Here's another of my closest treasures. A dignified pair of aka and kuro chawan. They both have their own box, and are boxed together in another one. Made by Shoraku sandai, and what i specifically love about these types of bowls is that the glazes covers the koudai as well. They either glaze the fo...

Re: Raku

Maybe Rakuyaki isn't everyone choice, that's alright. I'll simply overflow this topic till someone feels the spark:) I absolutely love the raku bowls i have, love holding them and inspecting them (as i'm not really a koicha drinker). Here's a bowl by another artist who's quite well known; Rakunyu Yo...
