Nezumi shino cup
When I pulled this pot from the kiln last week, I was really underwhelmed by it, but it's another of those pieces which has grown on me alot. The other night I drank wine from it (several times!), and I enjoyed the contrast of the dark, red liquid with the very light, airy glaze. The cup is fairly heavy when full, but I like that when drinking alcohol, don't ask me why..and the carved facets and ledges make the cup feel secure in the hand.
