This will be my modest attempt at establishing an online teaware site which will hopefully grow to include several potters working in various styles and regions in the world. My goal is to establish relationships with potters working in the genre of teaware, particularly Asian style teaware, and consign or purchase collections of their work for resale. This will enable me to offer work of high quality and artistic merit at very reasonable prices.
I am not certain if I will confine my selections to those potters who live and work in Asia as there are many who live in other parts of the world who produce excellent wares. It just might be easier to manage this if I limit the work to Asian sources. I will leave the door open and see who walks in.
To kick off this new venture, I am proud to offer the work of:
Seong-il lives and works in Boseong, South Korea. Boseong is located in Jeollanam-do province in the southwest of Korea, and, is a large producer of teas. You can see the lovely hills covered in verdant green tea bushes just about everywhere. In the midst of this, Seong-il produces teaware in his studio using stoneware, porcelain, and, onggi clays. He fires primarily in a gas kiln and on occasion, woodfires. He is what I would call a creative potter, stepping out of the traditional mold and creating lyrical yet practical implements for making and drinking tea. His is a rustic, yet, sophisticated style of teaware that makes a statement. I hope you enjoy his work as much as I do.PURCHASING WORKS
