It's beautiful, and arrived in fine shape, thanks to your lovely packaging!

flickr FINALLY put bbcode in their share script, YAY! so if you click on the images, it should take you to the page, where there are additional views.

This teapot is very nice. VERY. Extreme functionality, no dripping, moderate pour, unglazed inside, which can be very nice. 150ml on the nose. The handle is comfortable and the weight is balanced. Where ash has glazed the pot, there is a kind of matte finish and softness to the hand.

I love it.

LOL! uh, no. #1, I don't name things because I have a hard enough time remember peoples' names :shock: often resorting to saying things like "you know, that guy? that guy with the thing at the place? You must know who I mean, THAT GUY?"

and #2, I instantly thought of "Two-Face" from Batman, and that's just ooky.

I also received these two lovely little cups (surprise!) they hold about 70ml each, and while the glaze is not "matching" to my new teapot, the feel and style is an incredibly good fit. This morning I am enjoying an aged oolong with my new pot and cups. It's an excellent match with this pot.

LOL! funny Victoria. Actually they were a little surprise bonus sent with my teapot. Seong-il just nailed my taste in teaware, I love them.

Geek: lovely Seong il cups! it helps that he is a tea drinker and focuses his work in this genre. It'd be fun to take you to Korea and watch you go wild at the pottery festivals. :D
