Whiskey Barrel Ash Glaze Yunomi (handcrafted: pair)
|Author||Timothy Williams (United States)|
The online pictures do not do justice to these beautiful cups. When I first ordered them, I wasn't sure if they would be worth the price, but I am now very pleased with the purchase.
I like the delightfully rich contrast of textures on the cup's surface -- rough and smooth, matte and gloss. The pearly, off-white glaze is slightly sage in hue, and transitions into hints of blue and indigo where the clay's terra-cotta color peeks through (most strikingly at the bottom inside of the cup). The blackish/olive green lines running up the outside of the cup are more subtle than they appear in the pictures. Upon closer examination, they have various swirled shades of black, brown, and green.
These cups are definitely "keepers", and I plan to use them often. Very well done. Thank you for the excellent customer service! By the way, I was not asked to do this review or compensated in any way for it. --Timothy of Virginia, USA
