Akar....yunomi

I always get lost in the website for Akar Design Gallery in Iowa City. They have a great show there featuring Yunomi's by tons of potters. ( I often wonder how all these people get invited to be in there shows...hummmm) Anyways the definition of a Yunomi is -

"A form of teabowl, usually being taller than wide, with a trimmed or turned foot unlike the formal chawan tea bowl....a yunomi tea bowl is made for daily tea drinking - ceremonial."

I could spend hours downloading my favorite ones but here is what I had time for. I did some common threads of people's work and where some very famous people got there influence. Pretty cool, plus it shows what a small community we are!
You can go to the website at http://www.akardesign.com/ and click on current shows. Enjoy!
(I'll download some of the one's that caught my eye as soon as blogger lets me...maybe this afternoon). Jen
