There is just something special about these pieces, the way they feel in your hand, the details, how they look and smell. I loved watching my work cup that I used every day, slowing begin the crackling glaze. I didn't even mind the sweating and "leaking" which was really no worse than a condensation ring.
So I voted - Infinity ... always room for one more in theory that is!! As for storage and practicality, yeah there is a limit.
I like the look of some of the Hagi that has been shown, and find others look a bit clumsy. Yet, as others have observed, repeated viewing does tend to make even the clumsier looking ones appear more and more inviting.

I think I've posted my Hagi pics here at various times, but they can all be seen here. I've got my eye on a couple of pieces at the moment, but haven't "jumped" yet because I'm trying to decide between them and a tokoname kyusu that I really want. Heh.
"Gear Acquisition Syndrome," i haz it.

When I do get round to buying one, how is it best used for oolong?
They seem quite large! Does one have to get the smallest possible? And only partially fill it - to prevent the bottom most contents being too cool!
Do you actually use it for Green oolongs, and/or would you recommend it for darker DHP?
