Only a small part of the teaware I have used today. My lovely new Yixing teapot, working on seasoning it as quickly as I can. Brewing into my Park Jong Il Teacup, actually a wonderful match for that pot.


Love that tea boat.

It's got a bit of unintentional wabi to it... but not bad for one of the first 2 pieces I threw on the wheel. I oddly have not gone back to attempt any more wheel throwing.

I will confess, I snapped it up as quickly as I could--I had a premonition it might disappear quickly otherwise! :wink: I do hope Petr does more stoneware pieces with shino glaze interiors like that though ... I can see a lot of potential for gorgeous teaware designs in that technique.

I considered purchasing that little Gyokko, but it was simply too flat for my tastes, though I like the size and color. How does it handle fuka?

Maybe the pot is too full... oolong has a learning curve...

My new 'workhorse' Seto yaki kyusu :) It has a ball filter...

...and the air hole is hidden under the rim. Clever Japanese! :mrgreen:

The spout is kinda big, but when pouring the tea it doesn't gulp out at all (which I feared it would). And it's a breeze to clean! I like the egg-shaped lid.

I don't often like "modern pots" but that one is very beautiful.

I would have to agree! Though I'd worry about the lid getting too hot to handle ...

Just proves again that the functional requirements of teaware provide many opportunities for beauty of design, form, and functional.

Thanks guys! :mrgreen:

Depends... I brew my sencha in the 60 to 70 degrees C range, and in amounts that don't reach that close to the lid.

That fabric is a Kashmiri shawl. It's not only beautiful, but also really soft! :P
