I think just as the heat and steam brings out the best qualities of the tea, perhaps the steam is doing the same for the man. All the negative things we focus on falls away in such heat, and only the best is left....

What beautiful words. A very nice sentiment, indeed--surely from a beautiful mind. Thank for sharing that.

Though we can't yet share such a steaming cup together, one always awaits you here. In the meantime, I'll drink to your words hoping my negativities are steeped away, leaving behind a spirit pure enough to join you there.

Thanks again
Wu De

P.S. The calligraphy says "uncarved block", which is an ancient Daoist term that you pretty much defined perfectly with your words.

wow! Thanks I thought the way I wrote it was awkward, I'm so glad you appreciate it! I adore it. I've made such a connection with it, the thought of anyone else having it is upsetting me, could I purchase it?

It is hard not to have a reaction to so many of your pieces, Aaron!!! The simplicity of the lone kyusu,
the family of pots, the steam shrouded pot, the fluid arm and hand pouring a cup ... all simple, yet evoke sensation,
feeling.

It's a bit unclear on the website, it says: info (a) sagacitea dot com. Is it info@sagacitea.com?
