My first cypress bonsai

Another clay I have tried on Tue. Since it was also very sticky so I had to use more time on carving. When I hollowed out inside, I had to let it dry a bit first. Otherwise it was too soft and easy to deform.

Tried different clay today which was pretty smooth and also in high density. That’s why it was quite sticky when carving was doing. But the outcoming was very nice. Looking forward to do the first firing and glazing. I felt I was more sophisticated after 9 pieces was done.

Hammer restoration. Chose beech for the handle.

Once-fired and do the glazing.

Big trimming of my Celtis Sinensis bonsai yesterday.

A tiny one separated from a Celtis Sinensis Bonsai.

Another sake cup I have made by using Kurinuki technique. Also waiting for firing.

Learning Kurinuki technique to make sake cup. Waiting for firing.

Had been walking for 1-1/2hrs, no one on the trail except me and birds. And I heard some animals walking inside the bushes. Quiet and peaceful walk.

Very much enjoy hiking on foggy day.

Beautiful sake cup for nice sake!
