Yes, please! Almost anytime...

New small (125ml) teapot, unglazed inside - partly shino outside. It is standing on Mirka's teaboat.

Woah... I was thinking similarly... "lump of coal" (a very cool lump of coal, to be sure)...

The set is made of translucent porcelain with almost (90%) just Czech feldspar as glaze. The teapot can holds around 150ml. The teaboat is as always Mirka's creation...here is more pictures of it https://picasaweb.google.com/1182362173 ... 6101704018

Today I finally work on updating my available now album...part of the task is already done https://picasaweb.google.com/1182362173 ... ailableNow

Some of you may remember the tenmoku chawan I have posted here few weeks back. Now I made him small yunomi-brother. You can see how different clay (and of course firing) have impact on the colors even in such dark, non-translucent glaze.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who has been obsessing a bit over big brother chawan....so cool to meet little brother, and to see the 'family resemblance'.

Fortunately, I was already sitting down to a tea session with one of my new shiboridashi and yuzamashi and have managed to resist the siren call of these dark & handsome cups.
