Thanks folks. Yes debunix, they grow wings pretty quick :)

Andrzej, yes the feldspar is in the glaze not the body. I have a friend who is a wood turner and there's an intermediary stage of his process where he roughly turns the bowl and then allows it to dry. Sometimes these THICK wooden bowl forms split or have other minor defects that make them unsuitable for turning further. So I get them and use them to crush up the feldspar with a sledge hammer :twisted: it's not exactly high tech, but it works. :lol:

Happy me! I really was trying for a wares hiatus but these are just too special to pass up.

Wouldn't that glaze be beautiful on a Shawn houhin or shib?

Shawn I just finally pulled the trigger on 2 crackle Celadon tea cups. Man I can't wait.

I'll post up pics and thoughts in this thread when they arrive. Merry Xmas to me :)


Thanks,

Shawn

Thanks Shawn. They are on the way so hopefully you'll get them Monday.

I'm really looking forward to seeing those celadon cups after they've had some regular use. I'm pretty sure they are going to crackle-stain nicely. I just haven't been drinking enough tea lately to see the progression in one :oops:

This will be my first Crackle Celadon set. I cannot wait to see them stain up.

Shawn,

I was admiring your Celadon 60ml Gaiwans. Beautiful. But small for my needs, you ever make the more traditional 120ml size?


Thanks in advance,

Shawn

I bought 2 of these small gaiwans last year and broke part of the larger set. They're the best gaiwans I ever owned - the only gaiwans I'll use for oolong and puer that require boiling water. I just ordered one of the 60 ml gaiwans to replace the broken one. And the tiny tiny shib that will look beautiful with the tiny cup that Shawn included in my package.

The only problem now is how to fit the new tea ware in the cabinet. I suppose something factory-made will just have to go.

Those are quite lovely. They look similar in size/shape to one of my favorite cups from Shawn--a great cup to from which to drink multiple infusions of young sheng puerh, where I need to gulp the early infusions quickly, before they turn bitter, and need them to cool rapidly to do so.

Flying Saucer-Cups and Yuzamashi by Shawn. The Yuzamashi is getting use with almost every sencha session as of late. Has a really nice feel to it, natural, organic.

Need some Shawn made brew vessels to complete the set ... er sets! :idea:

Yes, thanks to Chip for the recent posts of the yuzamashi because I have a habit if putting away a bit if work from each firing to post at a later date. My thinking is that it gives my shop a greater variety of work. The problem is I put things away in bins and forget about it, out of sight and out of mind :?

Thanks for the action shots everyone!

I'm struggling to get back in the studio. Last week I made the mistake of not turning the heater in my studio up high enough. We had some seriously cold weather and all my new wet clay work froze, ruining it, so bummed :( I'm going to pull myself up by the bootstraps and get back to work this week. Any requests or suggestions for new work???? :)
