Where's the Hagi?

I just don't get it; why take one of Japan's greatest Tea potting names and then produce high heels? Golden chawan? And vases that would be censored in today's USA, too erotic some may say. I just don't 'get' Miwa KyusetsuXII, and I'm sure he feels the same about me. Anyway, the man is a genius, that is a given for the shere output and variety of his ceramic art, yet where's the Hagi?
