Of course! No problem, just price will slightly allow for your destination :) :)
Oh, perhaps I should have asked the price first! :twisted:

The cups look similar to the one drippy you sent?

Yes, just maybe even smaller and glaze has turned out darker and more translucent.

Can't find the photo I took of the one you made for my teaboard... That's a pity really... It was a work of art ! :lol:

Distinctly new, and still utterly lovely.

And how cute is this set, with the little pot that looks glazed with cream?

(edited later because teaChat didn't like the google+ address that my web brower thought was fine)

Hi petr,
I love your new work. I was wondering. Could you tell me how you use your charcoal pot to heat your water. I would love to try that myself.

Thanks

Hi senchalover,

With some practice,It is quite easy...I have a plan to write about my experiences on this field on my blog. But here are some basics...

I use Czech, higher quality hard wood (oak) charcoal.
Before using, I select good from bad- moving out all "slag" pieces, too small pieces and I broke too big ones. Then I clean coal dust under a water and dry it well (sun or oven). If I am making tea inside, I light up the charcoal on cooktop, after two-three minutes I move it in to my stove and wait few more minutes to see if lightning was enough. Then I put my ceramic kettle on the stove and I start to prepare tea, teapot, cups and all what I will need for my tea seasion...If everything goes well then I have my first cup in twenty minutes from begining. I stoke piece or two of new of the charcoal if it is needed...if I have a my tea outside I just find some chips of dry wood, light it up, put some smaller pieces of charcoal on it and with some blowing it start in five-ten minutes too.

Here you can see some pics of some sets which we have already made. Some stoves (those more elegant) are Mirka's work:)https://picasaweb.google.com/1182362173 ... veNaVareni
