This is a difficult cup to photograph....to bring out the vigor it has in the hand.
This is why I picked #19:Eiichi Rock teacup
, on Flickr
I love the diagonal swirliness, and the inner markings from being hand formed
It's footsie is solid, but not too exciting:
and the sides are rocky
It comes with visible crackling in one spot only
and as several people have noted upthread, it is quite a hot cup, good for warming hands with cool-brewed teas, but I would not want to grab it full of fresh hot Wuyi or puerh brewed just off the boil. This probably will be the most important thing in deciding where and how it will be used. I baptized it with some gorgeous Anji white tea.
And I posted a ridiculous number of photos here
, if you're a glutton for Hagi!
