I am a crafter, a weaver, and a gardener. I work and live in my home – and sell and ship what I make from the same place.
I also enjoy and sell tea cups, chawans, and yunomis. It has been a decades long study. I have developed a knowledge for really enjoyable tea bowls that will very likely increase in value over time. Some have already increased tremendously.
My personal standard for me is simple. It has five guiding principles: 1. Be kind. 2. Do good in the world. 3. Have a practice and seek humility. 4. Embrace the flow and all of nature. 5. Avoid dogma. With a simple life, a simple path seems to be a good fit for me.
It is a life of focused ease, where consistent work, peace, and an element of joy takes place.
