Tead Off, TEAWARE ONLINE
Check out members who are in the business of TEA/teaware!
My recent purchases of KIM EUNG CHUL teaware. The colors are more intense than shown in these photos but the pots feel as graceful as they appear. I thought I'd have no use for a 'huge' 200 ml pot but in fact it's quite useful for Chinese greens and for the chamomile that I try to drink every day for medicinal purposes.

Something about these pieces, both artists, just make me feel happy. So graceful and bouyant and sweet-souled.
They are wonderful.
For me, the artistic elements are very appealing and both artists execute in different ways. That is only the beginning, though. The actual tea-making is really where they shine even more. All clays are pure with no additives. Most of Seong il's works have unglazed interiors. Eung Chul's vary between glazed and unglazed. I have found that these teapots work with all kinds of teas, even puerh, young and old. I always have to hold myself back from praising the results of this work in other threads as it would be taken as self-promoting, but I can't say enough good things about them.
