Thanks Chip and Victoria! Taking the link from where Victoria pointed out on the PhotoBucket page works fine. I was copying from the address bar in my browser.

That Borneol is quite splendid, and I can't find much about it in wikipedia or via googling. Fabulous.

And such a blue on the cup above.

Here's a Qing Dynasty celadon plate. Although not actually tea ware, I use it as such. I have a late Qing Dynasty/ early Republican Period deep plate that I combine it with to brew tea. I will post the other one after this.

This is the other piece I use in combination with the previous post. This plate is quite deep and I use it as a tea boat. Again, like the first one, this isn't technically tea ware, but it works very well as tea ware. This piece is either a very late Qing Dynasty piece, or early Republican Period. I love this blue celadon and have quite a few pieces. The second photo kind of bleached out. The glaze looks like the glaze in the first photo.

Can anyone speak to the significance of an unglazed ring?
I have an old teacup with a ring that looks almost like the glaze was cut away, the difference in "height" is quite significant.
Maybe wax was used to keep glaze from sticking to that area.

Great pieces Herbmaster, Victoria, Britt, Cory and IPT!

Now something new ... and Hawaiian. Cory Lum Celadon Chawan as it should be, with Matcha.

A gift included with the Chawan ... a "chip-wan" off the old block. :mrgreen:

I cannot capture the effect with this P&S. But I think the Borneol effect mentioned and displayed by Herbmaster is what was what Cory was after. There is a layering and depth to the glaze.

Oh. My.

No, the P&S does not do that justice. I think I could do it justice, if, say, you loaned it to me for about a year. Or two. Or twenty. Might take quite a while, really.

Ask the dragon ... or try and sneak it away ...

Thanks, it is an impressive piece.

Handmade celadon by Xu De Jia, a Taiwanese potter, using traditional materials. Oh so cream and dreamy! :D

The unglazed ring is to allow pieces to be stacked one on top of another during firing. It is a technique to maximize space in the kiln (and probably the saggar -- which is a whole nother story). The unglazed circle inside of the bowl is the same diameter of the foot ring, so that during firing the pieces don't get fused together. Quite an amazingly simple technique. Another variation that is fairly common is when you see a piece glazed entirely on the interior and there are 4 or 5 rough rocky looking spots in the glaze. I'll see if I can find pics of both.

Hello,
I just found the the 'TeaChat' site and this is my first post. I am guessing what I have to add isn't new knowledge but will post it anyway.
I would like to comment on the unglazed ring part of this thread. The picture posted here, http://togeii.wordpress.com/2010/05/30/morioka-shigeyoshi-and-the-geek/moriokagojo-10-034/ is for making sure the piece doesn't stick to the shelf. The unglazed ring in an older bowl would have been for direct stacking, not stacking with "metsuchi" as is shown in the linked photo. This photo, http://togeii.wordpress.com/2010/05/30/morioka-shigeyoshi-and-the-geek/moriokagojo-10-036/ shows a different type of technique to keep the piece from sticking to the shelf. I didn't get any pictures of Morioka's pieces that have an exposed porcelain body like is being referred to in the question but he does do that type of firing.
Here is a picture of one of my bowls. The picture, Dave
bowl 001.jpg

shows stacking with the kind of clay stuck to the foot like Morioka.
I don't fire celadon but when I want to fire what the Japanese call celadon I add a dobai to the glaze. Dobai is a kind of rough ash.

Nice collection. I know Xu Dejia and have a ton of his pieces. I'm honored to have a lot of one of a kind pieces he's made too. I'll have to post some photos of them.

Not only is his work incredible, but he's a really nice guy to boot.
