Yunomi cups are the every day tea cups that Japanese people use. The Greenwich House Pottery Studio and Gallery in Greenwich Village in Manhattan recently sponsored a national competition focussing on Yunomi cups. Here are the 7 I made. I entered 3 in the competition. I’ll know on March 21st if any of them were accepted. I learned so much from this exercise that I have won already. I learned to make more than one piece if it really mattered to me how a final one –or 3- turned out. I learned to work smaller than I ever do. I learned to carve small pieces. I got back in touch with
English porcelain which I love. I learned to paint bisque pieces with mason stain slip–not easy on small pieces. And I learned to try new things–always an event at my age.
