I've yet to run into a set like that with cranes, but if I spot one I'll let you know.

Thank you kindly, karmaplace.

I have seen the crane motif on Korean celadon(?) pieces, but not the kyusu or a set. I am sure it has been done.

Someone asked me to stop using dong dao ru kiln (celadon) cup as it can contain poison (lead) with the way it was processed to made the crackle. Is it true? How do we know it is safe?

2 days ago I bought the right cup, today went to another branch and bought the left cup. Celadon cup made in taiwan. A year 2011 production (as per printed at the bottom of the cup). According to the shop Purple colour is lesser in quantity compared to the other coloured celadon.

Splendid cups, hard to imagine those being considered "second rate".

Dong Dao Ru Kin (Celadon) Gaiwan (Moon White) - 150ml - Used to own a similar gaiwan but sold it to a friend. Today decided to buy back the same gaiwan from the teashop.

Man I had just reread this thread the other day. If I had known you were looking for cranes I would have told you about this korean celadon tea bowl. :( Very nice. :o It's over though, winner paid $60.

Thanks B and T ... I do occasionally see bowls floating around on ebay. I am not sure why I have not taken the plunge yet.

"Someone asked me to stop using dong dao ru kiln (celadon) cup as it can contain poison (lead) with the way it was processed to made the crackle. Is it true?"

I've always thought that traditionally an extremely fine iron powder was rubbed in to bring out the crackle in a crackle glaze. Today, you'll often see Chinese potters dipping pieces in some sort of purple chemical solution instead. For a lighter, golden look, a fine earth powder is sometimes used. No doubt other materials are also used, including shoe polish for all I know.

Point is, while I'm not aware of lead being used, you can't rule it out I suppose, and who knows what material has in fact been used on any given piece. So if someone's cautious about drinking from a cup that's got dark crackles inside, I'd respect that, even if I might not be all that cautious myself and still use the cup.
