I always give the same advice: try, experiment. But this time I went too far. Tian Mu bowls don't fly. The shattered proof lies below. My beautiful replica of a hare's fur didn't survive it's 1,5 meters flight.
The best way to turn this loss into something positive is to look at the broken pieces. They can teach us a lot about this Zhen Yang clay. It's black and it's recent. Also, we can see how very thick the glazing is. This may not come accross very well on the pictures, so I propose, now that it's broken, to give a piece to the next people who order tea from me and who are interested in studying a fragment of such a (sic!) nice replica!
