    Thank you a lot Jakuden!


    it really gives me a lot of pleasure to make the bowls. I sometimes wonder what the difference to my painting is. Maybe it's 'the definitely obvious' ... because they can accompany everyday life? Sometimes I'm not sure if my English can describe the exact circumstance ... there is something in the mixture between handicrafts and art.

    Deepest bow and greetings to New York.

      Yes! We live in a world where not very much is handmade anymore. Does anyone here in the forum have the link to the video about the Japanese man that did/does the laquered bowls? This reminded me of that. The bowl, its maker and its user are one 🙏

        Hello Jakuden,

        I would like to see the video, maybe it will be. Does the man sign his bowls?
        At first I signed with the imprint of a snail. Meanwhile, I have returned to the ego and have a stamp with the initials -.-.

              I cannot find the documentary that folks mentioned, but this is very close ...

              Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube.

                Here's a craftsman doing the carpentry work:

                Sam Angelo completes a set of Oryoki bowls for a customer. Oryoki bowls nest, one inside the next, and are used in a traditional Zen meal ceremony.

                    Oryoki practice

                    Dear friends, dear Zen practitioners,

                    this week, the »arts.craft.living magazine« published a report about the Oryoki practice.
                    I am very happy that "arts.craft.living" gave me the opportunity to talk about my handmade bowls:

                    Oryoki is a meditative form of eating which evolved many centuries ago in the ancient Buddhist monasteries in Japan and China. The practice emphasizes mindful eating thankfulness, and virtues.


                    Gassho,
                    Peter

                            Peter, your bowls are beautiful!

                            I've been considering asking someone to make me a set of wooden bowls kind of like the ones in the video above. I never considered pottery, though! Now I'm starting to think about taking a pottery class at the local art center where I make silver jewelry.

                            In the end though, I'm kind of sentimentally attached to my strange little home kit which consists of a Pyrex bowl, a smaller bowl that looks like a grapefruit, and a condiment jar with a little lid that I use for the hungry ghosts' offering.

                              Dear Nenka,

                              I am happy that my bowls could inspire you. Maybe you want to sent a photo of your new ones, when they are ready?
