am getting more and more enthusiastic about these little guys. I almost
wish that I was a heavier drinker so I could use them more often. It
is such an intense nugget of a clay cup and what the fire does to it
is interesting. The fire caresses the textures and leaves it's marks
in just the right places as it wraps around the form. There's so much
going on in such a small space
is an acquired taste and is not something you are going to develop in
most restaurants unless they have a sake bar. My experiences with "warm"
sake in restaurants has not been good. The sake that gets warmed is
usually the lowest grade of cheap sake, and that is what most people
think of when they hear the word "sake".
fact it was by accident that I discovered the difference between good
quality and low grade sake. I bought a good bottle of Japanese
sake as an offering to a wood firing. After giving some to the
kiln, my firing mates and I shared the rest ....I liked it , and have
been learning about, and sampling different brand of good Japanese sake
ever since...with passion.
