Here's a modern day Oribe pot that I bought in one of my Japan trips in the early 80's.
It was 2 degrees here this morning, colder than they've seen in these parts for a long time! I got a couple of hours work in the studio just doing a bit of trimming and putting some handles on some mugs. The studio was warm enough because I keep the heat up for my tropical plants who are wintering in there.
Even the dogs did their morning business as fast as they could this morning, for which I was very grateful!
