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, ???
I have asked this question elsewhere too............If you enter into a competition and they have a specific theme..."chawan", " yonomi" , "tea bowl", "tea cup", "mug" ; How do you define it? How do you decide what to enter? Connie Christensen is our newest online teacher and the question came up when she made accessories to her teapot. Is this just a cultural thing, or is there any significant definitions? What say you? Antoinette Badenhorst www.porcelainbyAntoinette.com www.Teachinart.com
Yunomi thrown from clay with massive amounts of local NH granite dust and stone mixed in. Almost more stone than clay. Fired many multiple times in my woodfired noborigama to get the rocks to melt sufficiently. Included wooden stoage box. Sold at one of my solo exhibitions at an asian art gallery in the US. Now in the personal collection of the executive director of a US art museum.
