Very Strong Zen Feeling - Shinohara Takashi (From US)

  [Pine Tree Wood Fired SUZU Ware Shinohara Takashi Vase (Blue Cloud)珠洲柴焼] (Customer Message) I got the Shinohara Takashi Vase last week. It is more beautiful than the pictures. I enjoy its textures and colors which come from long exposure to a wood flame. It looks like the dramatic blue stars loom through the cloudy night, so beautiful and so elegant!   The vase shape also has a very strong Zen feeling, calm, firm and rational.   Thanks to Mr. Takashi's wonderful artwork!   Also I have to thank you again for the good services, well package, fast shipping !  Shinohara Takashi Page

Japanese tea ware in United States (Shinohara Takashi)

Japanese tea ware in United States (Shinohara Takashi)

[Shinohara Takashi Suzu-yaki Wood-fired Pitcher] (Customer Message)  I really love the feelings of tranquility and zen this pitcher evokes.  The overall color of the ware is really beautiful, especially the light green shade on the pitcher’s lip, which is reminiscent of moss growing on a stone.  The shape is also really soothing and pleasant to look at, and it definitely uses the wabi-sabi concept to amazing effect. My one criticism would be that the pitcher gets very hot to the touch, but it still otherwise functions very well despite that. Shinohara Takashi Page

Japanese cup in Hong Kong (Shinohara Takashi)

  (Customer Message) Since I received Mr. Shinohara’s works a few weeks ago, I have kept thinking why his works are appealing in a gentle yet longstanding way. To me, each of them is unique as each of them has a voice of the nature. His tea cups have been used for several times, for tea or water drinking, I feel that, in subtle ways, the cups soften and enrich the substance of the liquid inside. This is a new experience for me, so I look very much forward to meeting new products of Mr. Shinohara in Jan or Feb. ...
