Will Miss #235 - Japanese pottery

My husband and I don't give each other gifts for holidays anymore, but early on in our stay in Japan, we still did. One of my earliest requests was some hand-made Japanese pottery. In particular, I wanted some cups with traditional glazing and designs. There's something about the natural look and feel of this type of pottery which is comforting. It makes me feel like I'm consuming food or beverages from something closer to the earth and humanity. It's a much more meaningful feeling using such implements than something which clearly came off of a factory assembly line.

I'll miss this type of Japanese pottery.
