Art of Japanese Tea Bowl

After many frustrated attempt, I finally made a few tea bowls to my satisfaction. The tea bowl aesthetic is very intrinsic. A good tea bowl is a good tea bowl. It's the feeling unspeakable. When you see a good tea bowl, you will like it immediately. When I first saw the price of good tea bowls in Tokyo at over $1000 each, I was shocked. While it's fun to do tea bowl, it often makes you frustrated and shatters your confidence. It also brings much joy when you succeeded. Enjoy.

Ping, thank you for sharing your tea bowls. They are very beautiful and peaceful. I can imagine how they must feel when you hold them. Very nice work.
