Yes, Yes, and No. Although Chicagopotter sent me a yunomi for only the shipping charge, so I don't think that counts as a purchase. And I am going to buy something from Coloradopu when my financial picture improves next month!

Nilgiri Glendale Handmade this morning followed by Honey Orchid Oolong from the box pass.

Checked them out, one and all many, many times!

Browsed their sites, from time to time, particularly when something new crops up in a post.

Bought from Colorado and Shouzhen

Still waiting patiently for Moss to do some smaller Monk's Cups and variations, then ready to plunge back in!

Might be tempted if someone comes up with some nice fair cups / pitchers - I only have about 5 and could do with more variation in size, mood, colour etc.

Oops, that's right. I have bought a pot from Shouzhen. :oops: I forgot that finddream20 is one of the TeawareArtisans. Great pot too!

Slow day for tea ... some less than spectacular Taiwan earlier, a past-its-prime Chinese green, and now the last bits of my bag of Takumi Shincha.

Still, all of them were a pleasure.

Yes, yes, and no. I LOVE to look at the amazing creations, love to shop, not yet pulled the trigger and purchased. I don't "need" anything at the moment (ha, like that means anything)...so tea gets priority over tea ware.

The creativity and artistry we get to see here daily is awesome and so appreciated!

Keep it coming,
Dreamer

Yes, yes, and yes. The bowl in my avatar is from Bill at Splitfire Pottery. I enjoy looking at the all of the other artists' work and have drooled many times over things, but haven't pushed the button on anything else yet. I really just have to hold a piece before I buy it, especially if it is something I would use often. Quite possibly I may end up with another cup in two weeks when I visit the pottery fair.

Cup is empty since it is time for sleep. Earl Grey is set out for breakfast tomorrow though and I enjoyed some iced Darjeeling earlier this evening.

Uji Teabag from O-Cha to finish the TD!

And then there is Cory Lum, aka Bonjiri. Certainly an artist extraordinaire of clay and glazes and firings.

A Guinomi and Yunomi reside here, wanting Chawan companionship.

y/n/n

I have checked out some random threads but mostly my tastes run in other directions. =)

I'm more into porcelain and delicate stuff than textured, handmade things. Hagi scares me! :o :D

Yesterday's tea was varied; a couple cups of Dian Hong Jin Zhen when I came home from work, genmaicha with my dinner, some matcha mixed in with ice cream(at 10 pm...BAD idea :S ).

Right now Yunnan since I'm at work. Two more days before going on a 4-week holiday \o/

I can well believe that, mrs. Chip!

This forum is responsible for a lot of things, googling my work nights away looking for yixing pots, ordering matcha and pertaining paraphernalia :shock:
ordering pu :shock: :shock: reading up on and browsing ebay for raw pu :shock: :shock: :shock:

Ebay is a right bog...just when I thought I was out etc etc

Six months ago I drank black tea and nothing else. I guess you'd call it progress..or progressing illness =D
