I really want some of these Endo Stripe ceramics from The Hill-Side (beer tumbler, coffee mug, cereal bowl, small plate, and Tokkuri vase), but even more than that I want to live in the kind of apartment where a 30 USD coffee mug and/or cereal bowl doesn't look wildly out of place. I strongly doubt that all the bowls in my cupboard are worth 30 USD total. Thanks, Ikea. Anyway, these ceramics are hand-thrown and glazed in Mashiko, Japan by master potter Taro Endo, which means they are super dope. I would use an emoji for emphasis here, but they don't make one powerful enough to capture the massive dopeness of these children of the kiln. Shit, now all I can think about are terrible taglines for Children of the Kiln like "And a pinch pot shall lead them..." or "These ashtrays are home alone too. But their pen holders are never coming back". I thought the original was pretty good, but it was all downhill after Children of the Kiln III: Return of the White Glaze. By the time Children of the Kiln VII: Pottery in the Hood came out, the whole thing was a joke, but I still like that scene where former white rapper / current reality TV personality Vanilla Ice and stand-up comedian / tax debtor Sinbad take a ceramics class while high on PCP. The part when Sinbad farts blood and then they eat the teacher alive is priceless. Cracks me up every time -RB
