Teabud, thanks for sharing this story and wares with us! I am sure we are all looking forward to seeing much more. If you open a photo host account with photobucket or flickr or similar, you can post as many photos as you want within a post.

Let me know if I can help you!

Also thanks for sharing your wares, blairswhitaker, Victoria, Dresden,

Hi Teabud,
I love your story - it's is transporting.
In your above post - your photo isn't there - I think you need to click the "Img" button above the typing window - then place the address of the image between the two bracketed elements. When you're doing it, it'll look something like this before you submit:
[img]photo%20address[/img]
(I made it red so it would stand out - it'll just be black normally; oh, and the 'photo%20address' is just me putting that in there where your photo internet address goes).
I can hardly wait to see more of your collection.
Thank you so much for sharing - quite a gift. :)
all the best,
Seeker

Cool, I'll try it!

Teabud - my humble apologies! :oops:
I didn't realize you were linking us to a slideshow. :oops:
I have stumbled with my own ignorance. :oops:

Please disregard my instructions above as they were probably most unnecessary.

Embarrassed. :oops:

I see that only one photo at a time thats ok. but can share more this way also thank you for the info.

Here is a style of Yixing teapot I love the most its called nut and seed teapot. This one pictured here is made by Pei Shiming a yixing artist who died in 1977. He was one of the four founders of modern Yixing factorys still in work today

Here is a very nice well loved teapot. Its 17/18th century and unsigned but its very well loved. This is what happends to an Yixing teapot that has tea and time mixed togeather. The effect is like a glaze that covers the pot like glass. I call this effect as well loved teapot.

Blessings and drink tea!
