Teapots and other teaware

by TuoChaTea » Aug 3rd, '17, 09:13

SOHEN teacup (large) - your is for $40 plus shipping

Description from the vendor:
Handcrafted Teacup:140mL (4.93fl oz)
Made by Mr. Naoto Tanii.
Mr. Tanii was born in 1976.
He is known for his strong and bold approach to pottery design.
Mr. Tanii, is the middle child of three brothers.
He built his kiln, Yurakugama along with his two brothers.
Together, the family enjoys making his versions of tea ware.
These Black tea cups (Yunomi) are a unique style of the Shigaraki ware.
Mr. Tanii's unique style is from his secret combination of glaze, the soil or clay, and the temperature of baking.
The combination of glaze is his top secret, and is known only to him.
His bold design style is characteristic of what appears on these crafts.
Each piece of Sigaraki-ware is stamped on the back.
Specially packaged in a wooden box. Lead-free. Made in Japan.

Shigaraki ware
Shigaraki is one of the six major old Japanese kilns.
Begun in 743 A.D., the Shigaraki kiln has produced traditional Japanese ware for over 250 years, and holds the distinction of being the oldest kiln.
Shigaraki, located near Kyoto, was once the capital of Japan. The soil was found to be rich in clay that was suitable for pottery. Because of the location and the abundance of clay Shigaraki prospered due to the pottery production.
RIKYU SEN (1522-1581) was the Master and Founder of the tea ceremony. Rikyu Sen used only the tea set, which was made in Shigaraki. It is because of this auspicious beginning that Shigaraki is so famously regarded.
Shigaraki ware is characterized by its natural, simplistic style and grace of the combination of the clay and feldspar.
The style and taste of Shigaraki ware depends on the combination of the glaze (Yuyaku), the clay, and the firing temperature of the kiln.

Duan Ni xi shi yixing teapot. About 100ml large, I used it with Wu Yi rock oolongs a lot. Works nice, no dripping. Should be at least partially hand made, I got from a local vendor in 2006 (the vendor unfortunately is now out of business because Slovakia was unprepared for the prices of nice teaware back then)

Yours for $40 plus shipping. Multihole filter.

Really? Ok, I may be fooled. How do you know?

I made a search and I got them from Imen from Teahabitat back then. Looks a reputable vendor to me.

They are these http://tea-obsession.blogspot.hu/2012/0 ... -cups.html

Glaze, foot, clay, cobalt used, etc.

They may be from the late R.O.C. or 50s/60s period .. difficult to date from just two photos, but I personally don't think earlier than that.

Ok, thank you for your opinion. I do not have too much experience with antique teaware, so I'm writing what I was told.
