Yunomi

25 November 2014 - 07:52 PM

Thought I'd start a thread on yunomi.

I've been practicing cylinders for a while now. (.... Make 1000 before...). I sometimes think they are decent. Sometimes I realize I know nothing.. ( while I'd like to make a reasonable chawan, I'm currently concentrating on cylinders / yunomi

So please discuss, post pictures and comments about yunomi here. Your work or others, anything yunomi related.

I not in ceramic school. (But am seriously considering it...I don't have a teacher, with the exceptions of those on the net....no one at the community center understands "tea", and I need more input.....

I got this from John Baymore, (he was referring to chado, tea ceremony, chawan) "...... Study the tea cermony..... Drink and learn about tea....... This advice has taken me far.

Is it ok to use chawan vocabulary when talking about yunomi.... Kodai= foot, Kochi= Hip, ???
