Mr. Fellman set me up with my own kettle by the table "warming base and all " which i was so kindly allowed to refill 4 times. it was a nice tea session of about 3.5 hrs "sort of broken up by pesky customers" and rummaging threw the tea ware i brought but it was very nice.

any who thanks for all the support and nice comments

The Yuzamashi (water cooler) and 4 green cups arrived today. Each piece is unique yet form an nice grouping versus a 100% matching homogenous set. They look great together in a somewhat eclectic fashion.

The Yuzamashi is very cool!!! CP has gone out of his way to make smaller pieces and this is definitely an example, this is very precocious. I really love this one!!!
Image

The cups are all very individual although sharing the same basic color. I would not call the pieces delicate, more solid. CP is adapting his craft to our niche and in time I would like to see less weight, not that these are "heavy."

Overall, great pieces that will stand the test of time, very unique, eclectic, handmade "in the USA."

I would recommend giving CP's pieces a try. And I am certain he will entertain some requests.

great review chip thanks

bye and bye i do have thinner pieces just not in green yet

keep your eye open more to come

and as fare as the tea i got in trade i am enjoying them very much. i would list them here but there are so many. the one i think i will save as my special tea is the 04 dong ding " it doesn't get any better. and if it does i don't know anything about it." all the others are top notch and splendid to drink. as chip has opened a new door to me in greens i will be exploring it with time i may be able to comment on things with practical knowledge. as with puerh greens seem to have a special niche too.

thanks chip great trade!

i can now say i have a nice inventory on display as consignment to seven cups tea house in Denver.

i hope those of you here at tea chat that are in Denver will go by seven cups and check out the pottery.

and i invite you to Handel them to see for your self how they feel in the hand.

thanks goes out to the guys with seven cups world wide for the opportunity i have been given.

and thank you to all of you here at tea chat who have given suggestions and have helped to influence my style giving me insight to tea ware. please continue with your comments and polls as i find them valuable tools too say the least.

as you may know i have pottery at Ku cha tea house in boulder too so i would like to extend the same offer to those in boulder Colorado. Ku cha tea was the first to give me the opportunity to consign pottery. i have improved in my skills again thanks to tea chat and the info gained from Quinn during long and delightful tea secessions.Ku cha was there when i was just teaching my self to make tea pots and Quinn provided me with access to his customer base allowing for direct questions to people who drink tea. just like tea chat members they helped me to progress.

for someone who does this as a Hobie and who is eager to learn about new shapes and forms i cant express enough thanks to all who read this and the other posts i have made.

thank y'all

experimental clay

Postby coloradopu » Aug 6th, '09, 19:28

hand dug clay i processed and mixed with porcelain

they are not for sale but i thought you might want to look at them.

looks like tea pot clay.

i have been working on this for a year now testing etc and this is the first pots i have made with it.

throws like a dream and gets a nice tea patina

look for more of this to come i have a 200 gal tub with raw clay soaking right now will process it over the next few weeks.

i need to have it tested for the bad stuff but so fare i have seen no problems with it yet.

take a look
