Do you mean crackleware 'cup'? If so, I love it so much! It's my favorite cup, delicate, perfectly shaped, just the right size, beautiful color. I enjoy my tea even more when it's in this cup =)

Roasted wulongs. I like the way a dark tea is colouring the cup, reminding me of an animal fur. This looks indeed very much inspired by the Hare's fur style used in traditional chinese ceramics.

Here's a couple of examples :

Roasted wulongs.


Yeah, I was also considering using them as a larger type of cup for Chinese Tea, probably an oolong, more than likely a roasted oolong.

David, that cup is quite nice also. The artist certainly produces some eye catching pieces, and the oilspot effect is stunning.

It is so wonderful to see what beautiful things are wrought in the service of tea. Bamboo and porcelain, sandy coarse clays and delicate translucent glazes, brilliant woods and handworked metals.

I have a couple of Hagi awaiting their moment in the sun, or rather, the slightly indirect rays of same.....slacking here.....
