tea bowl

So in my second year in school in ceramics, I made this great little japanese winter tea bowl. I still am so smitten with it, no one else is allowed to use it, hehe... I have been trying to replicate it ever since and 3 years later, I think I finally got quite close. The one on the left is the original in a tenmoku reduction glaze. The new one is on the left in a speckled blue of brown glaze.The shape is a little off towards the top, but it floats just as nicely as the first one does. I love the round feet and curve of hte edge. Also the angle at wich the hip goes into the base...
