Boxes for Chawan and Stationery : 茶碗の箱と文房四宝

Several months ago, 2 American potter-friends gave me their very nice 茶碗 ’Chawan’ as friendship gifts. I got wooden boxes made in Japan and have been thinking about 銘 ‘Mei’ [a special names] for them.

I also had to name one of my Chawan for my client in the States. It will be sent to a new home in California.

I felt I am out of practice with my 箱書 ‘Hakogaki’ skills. Instead waisting my time with web net-surfing, I should be practicing 書 ‘calligraphy’ more to make myself feel confident with it again.

About Gas

Hi, I am a wood-fire potter, living and working in the Japanese tradition in Tring, Hertfordshire (UK). Following mediaeval potter's wisdom, I design and build simple wood-fired kilns called 'anagama' for long period of firing and 'raku-gama' for quick (glazed tea bowl) firing. My anagama firing usually takes 9 - 10 days.
