Raku provencale

This two nice cups where made by a South of France artist I meet in Milano, Jean Philippe Razzanti, I bought them for my mother in love, she is a master of Tea Ceremony in Japan. The colour is really great and is very difficult to find somthing similar in Japan where the tradition is very strong and few artists have the courage to move apart from tradition or just have a different sensibility and culture. Bravo Jean Philippe. The cup for Chanoyu, the Tea Ceremony is called Chawan, the photo was made with natural light on a laquered woodden table.
