In keeping with my interest in Enso across many media, illustrated is a classical Nezumi-Shino chawan by Wakao Toshisada. I have written about Toshisada before, so I will keep my comments brief; the beauty of this pot and its partial white Enso is its many possible interpretations and its balanced asymmetry. With the roving lip as the horizon, it resembles a full moon rising into the night's sky to reach for its fullest potential as is the potter with this lyrical and simple pot.
