Yes, they are both brewing vessels. Simply put: They are tea pots.
A kyusu has a handle, a shiboridashi is essentially just a bowl with a lid.
... with a modified lip/spout thingy ... technically speaking.
A Shiboridashi is usually around 3-4 ounces, 90-120 ml, and it is not uncommon for them to be even smaller, so typically smaller than a typical kyusu.
They are great for a small session of an exceptional tea, and although most often thought of for gyokuro, you can brew whatever.
