I’ve been trying out some things that are atypical for me… namely, functional pieces, tea ceremony pieces, and trying not to be perfect.
This wonky chawan is a little bit lumpy (and distorted? asymmetrical?) on purpose, as I was tasked with the project of basically making a pinch pot and then modifying it a little bit on the wheel. Totally out of my comfort zone.
I think I like how it turned out.
(Oh, and I made one matching sake cup.)
Thank you for looking!
