Wadda ya think?

It has be a long time since I've blogged. But here's the deal....I make these Yunomi's and I like them both but......which one is has the colors that most people like....love??? The earthtone colors are calm and so .... so.... you know....earthy! But the blue one with speck's of dark blue and green glaze combination is fab.

Just in case you don't know what a Yunomi is, here's the scoop...more or less.

A yunomi is a small cup, usually used for tea in a traditional Japanese tea ceremony. The walls are generally thick enough so that the cup can be held while full of the tea. (Or, some say, the tea should never be so hot that you cannot hold the cup in your hand.) There is a more detailed description of what a Yunomi is but I won't bore you with the details. Mind you, you can use these for any drink you prefer and you don't really have to have a ceremony before you use them.

What I DO want to know is....which glaze is most appealing to you? Go to my etsy shop...(you can click on my shop link on the right side of this blog or go to www.artsielady.etsy.com to see additional views (you get a better feel for what they look like). Extra chance in the drawing if you make a Yunomi a favorite ( give it a heart).

Post a comment on this blog and at the end of August I will draw a name for that lucky person to receive a Yunomi. You know me.....I'll do it!

Well - I have to go with the blue/green combo. Both are terrific, but I am just a peaceful colors kind of gal.

BTW - me me me - pick me!!!!!!!1

I'm voting for the earthier one, it seems more unusual to me, so that's the one I want [when I win}!!

Sixsisters said...

I really love the blue/green. I am a big tea drinker and
can imagine myself enjoying these very much.

Chauncey said...

Love them both, I'm leaning towards the earth tones.

Kary said...

ooo - the blue/green ceci! Very calming & oceany!!

Judy Nolan said...

Hmmm...even though blue is my favorite color, I really like the golden brown one. Since I'm the 6th person to post, that makes it 50% for the blue, 50% for the brown. Guess we're not being very helpful, are we?! LOL

ZudaGay said...

I LOVE the blue and green ones!! The earth tone is beautiful too, but I really like blue and green together here lately it just does something to me.

joon said...

I do love them both and it looks as though you need to keep making both! But, I think the blue green edges out the other one a teeny tiny bit. I love blue. And we drink tea like there's no tomorrow. So my tea bag strings are crossed that I'll be the lucky winner. Thanks for sharing your blog and give-a-way, Ceci.

I hearted you on etsy as 'jewels of india'.

Lucky Girl said...

I like them both. If I was shopping for a set of these, I'd choose a couple of each color.

On a Whimsey said...

Both colour combis are great but I lean towards the blue - well I like blue! Cool, calming like tea should be.

Love your work and will now have to do the praying dance for the blue green one to come to me!!! LOL

Keep making both colours though!

Myfanwy said...

Ceci, how does one choose! I love the earth tones, but the blue green is equally fab. So......

OK, I'll go for the blue green! But that earth tone is such a close second.....

Gina said...

Both are beautiful! My favorite is the earthy. It has a wood-fired/shino look and I really like how it breaks so nicely over your stamp.

rivera said...

LOVE them both! The earth colors gives that wood fired look that I love, but I had to go with the blue and greens for the colors of the sea are just so calming. They are absolutely beautiful and if you ever want to share that glaze-PLEASE DO! I think you will have to keep making both of them!

Michael said...

Gotta be the brown one! Are you planning on any other colors?

Vivian said...

Love them both, as others have saidm they are BOTH beautiful but I would have to pick the earthier one! I would love to win, either!

We had a chocolate lab named Cocoa for many years. He was an escape artist! Look out! :) Any time we had a thunderstorm he was off down the street! Very sweet, though!
