I put together a short video slideshow of a Ko-Iga style chawan by Kojima Kenji that a fellow collector sent my way and that is currently up on my Trocadero marketplace. It is a large and very pleasing piece that was thrown, tooled and fired with little manipulation or alterations to the bowl from wet to hardened clay. I like a bowl that maintains the freshness and directness from the wheel head and this particular pot has captured that essence. Enjoy and let me know what you think.
You can see more of this chawan over at my Trocadero marketplace;
