To give credit where it's due, the frontmost pot is Petr's work--a lovely stoneware piece that pours beautifully. The second pot is actually Korean, a Seong-Il porcelain pot--I was just finishing off two teas when taking pictures, and thought the contrast looked nice.

But yes, Petr does do gorgeous work--I would encourage you to check out his galleries (and his 'gems'!).

I am honored that my teapot share the place with the Seong-Il's beauty!

New post on my blog is out, now about some work in progress http://potsandtea.blogspot.cz/2013/02/c ... ocess.html

And here is one of the Mirka's new stove. Fuming in sagar in electric kiln. Low fired. I am testing it right now. I will share how it works pretty soon.

As I have promised, here is few more pictures of the fumed stoved. I am still testing it but I can already say it works quite nicely. Only problem show up when I use bigger kettle- the sieve, which works as great and on which the kettle sits on is rather smaller. When I used wider kettle it took longer time to make the same amount of water to boil. On other hand it works also with glass teapot.

When the glass teapot is not so nice to handle and to look at (for me) it is nice to watch the boiling water...

And, as I Andrzej would say, Now for Something Completely Different...Mirka's new kogo (insence box). The small black pit on the top is actuall moldavite. It lost its color and melted in to the clay.

Peter, your new kettle is absolutely perfect! Is it hair or grass marks on it?
And I with admiration watching your new stowes. For me it was always very temporary (more focuse on function less appearance) utensil but what you are doing now is amazing.

Yes, indeed ! Thanks to all for your support.

Here is the second one from the serie. Those were made as custom order but she realy enjoyed to make them so we can expect more from next firing.

it is a bit bigger then most traditionale kogo's, 8*8cm, but the texture needs some space:)

Thank you John.

Today, I was taking pictures of new wood ash we have tested and I would like to share it here with you. But to make it more fun, lets guess :) Who will be the nearest to the plant or wood from which this ash is, will win this particular cup (shipping all around the world included).

The ash was just washed and sieved, any substance ad. Then we glazed with it this porcelain cup. So what, growing around us, can make (when burn and fired then to 1280°C in woodkiln) create such nice, gently crystalline glaze??? You can write the guess both here and to my email. The game ends this Thursday, 7p.m. of our time... :wink:
