Japanese pottery-type-things for the table

Thi N. | Apr 2, 2002 03:34 PM

So I have this fetish for hand-made and close-to-it pottery type things from Japanese places. (And, to some extent, Chinese stuff). I think my life would be much happier if I could have my soup out of a little red glazed bowl. Watching the Ozu movie Equinoctal Flower and I realized I was paying as much attention to the gorgeous glazed teacups and bowls on the table as I was to the story. Christ. I need to resume normal life.

Anyway - does anybody know of a good supplier? I'm willing to go down to Torrance/Gardena. The OK-est I've found is a little store on the north side of Santa Monica a block or two west of Sawtelle, which has lots of nice standard stuff, but nothing really special.

Also - on the lookout for chazatsus - little Japanese tea caddies, especially those covered with comfortable-to-hold Japanese paper-craft.
