I was watching the movie Shaolin and found this gaiwan. Not sure if it is Andy Lau's affection or not but I found the gaiwan he's holding is so....sexy.
Anyone know where I can find one like this ? Thanks a million. :lol:

Tea Habitat has recently posted some very nice looking gaiwans--I can't vouch for them as I haven't seen them in person, but they look pretty nice. This one is a very plain green glazed version and there are several celadon versions that are not quite so plain, having some carved/engraved decorations. I find the celadons to be quite tempting.

Wow I love that plain green glazed version by Tea Habitat! Looks really refined.

I activated your link! 8)

Yeah, those porcelain gyokuro sets can really get expensive. The weak dollar to the yen has really upped the price of premium higher end Japanese wares! :evil:

I like all of those pots from artistic Nippon too. The shiny beaten cast iron look of the 2nd one is particularly attractive, and I'm always a sucker for a flat, saucer shaped pot. But....I can only fit so many pots into the cupboard....
