A Winter chawan

This is a great Winter chawan, a tea cup for the tea ceremony, with matsu (pine trees), under the snow (yuki). This chawan is one of a nice collection of a cha-no-you (tea ceremony) master in KItakata, Japan. I took this picture with natural light and using a Japanese black laquered wooden tablet as back ground to achieve the reflection of the cup.
