I am curious if this pot has a filter built in. Thanks!

Hi Laura- Yes it has a filter built into the wall :)

Thanks for posting Debunix! Love the action shots!! Please let me know how it functions for you.

This is the only one I did with this glaze, it was kind of a test and I like it, I think I'll do a few more this way...

I just bought the lovely rutile glaze gaiwan (w/o cups). I have been looking for a special gaiwan for a while and I fell in love with this one. Beautiful work!

Well, as usual I didn't get everything I wanted done. But, I did manage to list some new work. Here's a couple of them with direct links.

And here's a few examples of new cups I've play'n footsy with :wink: These are thrown super thin and delicate, and of course are still unfired. I'm having so much fun with teaware right now! :D

The goldish spots at the bottom were really what caught my eye. It is really lovely.

Shawn, that's really some great new work.

Thank you Shawn, mine arrived safely today.

and I have already enjoyed using them!

Image
both very very similar, yet unique

Image

from some angles they look and feel triangular

Image

one perhaps slightly more than the other, but at other times they appear less so

My initial feeling was that I thought they would have been a little smaller, and would have preferred them to be so

but it is not a problem if I only half to two thirds fill them, and they are delightful in the hand and on the lip.

Interesting that we get to see unglazed clay in the exterior circles.
I wonder if this means I must not wash with a detergent?

I have enjoyed using them today

but I am old and my eyesight is fading :(

How does the inscription read?

Yay! I'm glad that they arrived safely. They look very strange with a flash.

Man, I thought those were really small :lol: ...lol Interesting and I love the feedback, thank you! Are you sure you folks aren't gnomes :wink:

No reason to fear washing them Sir. The clay is vitrified and has very little absorption. I'm not sure what the fear of that is, but it will neither damage them, nor influence the taste of the tea you put inside of them.

That is simply my signature on the bottom of the pieces Herb.

Thanks for posting :D

This is beautiful, but a fingers or lips burner indeed :roll: Love the color! Perhaps a thinner or flair rim? You are heading a great direction! Congrats

Thanks a lot Tim. I think you are right, this would require careful use. This feedback is really important to me, so thanks again :D I'm preparing to break out the porcelain for next months wood-firing, so the more I learn on here the better my work will evolve, I hope :?:

I'm almost thinking I should put together a sort of survey or list of all my questions, post it here, and whoever fills it out, I'll give them a hefty discount code to my shop........hmmmm :idea:
