Yunomi


I'm working on a set of Japanese tea bowls for 'every day use':  they're called yunomi.  They are taller than the tea bowls used for the traditional tea ceremony.  When they are done, they will be shipped out to the AKAR Gallery in Iowa, and will go onto an online sale in February.  This year I am using our compost containers for inspiration.  We put two new ones up, using some old fencing that we'd gotten a number of years ago to put around an older garden so the puppies wouldn't run through just after a planting.
