Yunomis

Amy Clark

YUNOMIS.

A yunomi (Japanese: 湯のみ) is a form of teacup, typically made from a ceramic material, being taller than wide, with a trimmed or turned foot. Unlike the more formal chawan tea bowl which is used during the Japanese tea ceremony, the yunomi is made for daily (or informal) tea drinking.

Thinking about all the handles that I make and I’m considering a movement toward handle-less cups.  

The selection in my cabinet date back to the early 90’s and include Ron Meyers, Highland Pottery of Vermont, Winchcombe Pottery, Robert Compton, Donovan Palmquist….and a lot of Ocean Fire Pottery.  Looks like I need to add to the collection!

Ocean Fire Pottery's 1st Wood Firing

Amy Clark

PHEW...we did it! I am beyond grateful & overwhelmed, again. OFP's 1st firing was amazing and all thanks to the incredible team of people who worked so hard leading up to this & through the night(S) to get it done! Whether it was cutting/hauling wood, cooking, moral support, chucking wood, playing music to entertain us through the wee hours & so much more...ALL equally important in this process! THANK YOU!!!
