I have donated this small teabowl (2"x3"x3") to the Arts and Crafts United for Japan Ebay Auction. The original was thrown, and hand carved. After the firing a mold was made. After the casting, I re-carve the under-cuts and details of each piece that are lost in the slip cast process. After the final firing , the unglazed surface is hand polished. A lot of time, but worth it for this tiny teabowl. Consider a bid on this or other fine crafts with the proceeds going directly to the relief efforts in Japan.
