Tea of course. Haha. That vase is gorgeous! I saw it on his blog. Did you buy it? I'll bet it is even more beautiful in person. I'm becoming quite a fan of Seong-il's work.
There were 2 in his studio with this type of glazing. I bought the larger mouthed one plus 2 more that haven't arrived yet.
It helps that Seong il is a devoted tea drinker. He understands the ergonomics as well as the look and feel of teaware. When you hold his teaware, you can immediately feel the weight and balance and harmony that is present in his work. His eye for color and design is very good. He is someone who has stepped away from the traditional Korean path in ceramics and has struck out on his own path but has not abandoned the traditions.
