forces of nature by nyankorita forces of nature by nyankorita
Today, I write this in memory of my favorite bowl, which suffered a severe injury resulting in death, after an accidental fall during its bath.

It was created during the winter term of 2003 at the University of Oregon. The bowl, made of porcelain contaminated with a little stoneware, was carved over the course of many days, and was fired in a gas kiln with a green celadon glaze. Despite the few glaze bubbles on the inside, which were considered beauty spots, the bowl was loved and admired by many.

It served its life mainly to hold yogurt and fruits every morning, though sometimes also soup, rice, or even stir-fry. It travelled from the dusty studio at UO to a couple different apartments, as well as a house full of college kids, where it was miraculously protected from any obvious accidental abuse. It then travelled to a tipsy house in the northern island of Japan, where it spent a very cold winter, and just recently to a small comfortable apartment on the island of Honshu, where its life was brutally ended.

It shall be revived from the land of the dead, using the magic of super glue, and serve its reincarnated life as the holder of non-food items. It will, however, be missed by its food friends and its creator and killer.

とてもきれいな茶碗だったので、壊れてしまったのは残念なことですが、まだ使えるならいいんですね。柄は生きているかのような感じを与え、素敵ですし。
私も、台湾へ行ったときとても侘び寂び的な茶缶(お茶を入れる器)を買ったんですが、イタリアに帰ったらふたが落ちて傷ついてしまいました。でもおかげでいまもっとわびさびな感じがするのですXD。
ちなみに、しばらく話していないので私の日本語がわかりにくいかもしれませんが、すみませんね。

いいえ、難しい漢字まで使っていて、とてもお上手ですよ ^_^

il tuo giapponese e piu migliore del mio italiano. neanche non ho practicato il italiano in molto tempo... comunque, molto grazie per il complimento, la critica estesa e la storia bella!

ho visto nel tuo profile che ti piace la arte ceramica, ma la tua galleria e di digital arts. tu fai la arte ceramica?

Ma... tu parli anche Italiano... e sei pure bravissima! Che sorpresa!

いえいえ、あなたもイタリア語お上手ですよ。難しい言葉もご存知ですし。少しお聞きしたいと思いますが、どこでイタリア語を勉強なさいましたか?

私のギャラリーですが、イラストは趣味と仕事になっていますが、焼き物を作れないのにとても興味があるのです。もともと好きでしたし、3年間茶道を勉強しましたので、そこがこの興味がもっと深くなりました。ですので茶道用の茶碗や、お茶いれ、水差し、花瓶、お湯のみなどの小さなコレクションを持っています。でも自分で作ったものではないので、ギャラリーに写真を入れるのは悪いと思って・・・。
いつか焼き物を勉強したいとは思っていますが、なかなか機会がなくて・・・。でも東京に住んでいたとき焼き物の展覧会があったら絶対いっていました(笑)。

ありがとうございます。でも、分からない言葉をインターネットの辞書で調べながら書いたので、実力はもっと低いですよ。。。

ho studiato il italiano per quasi un anno nella universita, e anche ho visitato Italia per 5 settimane per viaggiare e studiare arte di tessile. ma adesso non ho praticato italiano in 3 anni >.< il mio spagnolo e migliore perche l'ho studiato piu.

che interessante che hai studiato cerimonia di te, e che hai abitato in Tokyo! Che hai fato in Tokyo? la arte ceramica e molto diferente in Italia, ma e molto bella anche. forse potresti studiarla in Italia??
