Koetsu bowl at the Freer
"In the storage collection is the Koetsu bowl that was handed to me (casually) by the curator, in 2007. Remarkably small and light. I eventually responded to this experience by making hand-formed bowls. It is described as coil built, and the angularity and lack of rounded surfaces suggests it was formed using the paddle tool."
