Thanks all of you for your kindly response and helpful tips.

I did not see notches in the lid in any pictures I have got on net. If you have any links to such I will be grateful.
The lid nob is high as about my thumb width (2mm less). But thanks I will put my attention on that.

Right, sometimes it can be a potter's (or user's) nightmare;) Look below

That is a mix of various stoneware clays. Because it was made for „scientific" reasons important for me was non porous of that clay.
Now that is my beloved teapot (7 days, 12 times a day) and I see no tea patina.

Somebody called such a higher shiboridashi „modern fashion”;) Set of new is wider/oldschool:-)

Once again thank you.

Hi Andrzej I think this is the notches Ambrose is talking about. It is under the lid :D I am also a big fan of Shiboridashi :D I'm looking forward to seeing more beautiful pieces by you :D

Hi Andrzej,

It is funy, isn't is? About "notches" I have realized that even those help they are not necessery - It more depents on how the shape of the lid and body of the shiboridashi fit to each other -if there is the gap, how big, how lines in shiboridashi are done and so on.... I still work on the "perfect" one too..so keep going, I like it:)

Best
Petr

Here are some new shots of some last year (but not least) works have remained in my studio. The photos are (here just a few) for my blog (catalogue pages) but I wanted to share them with you first.

Dave - Hallo! I wanted to say I do not use commercial, ready glazes (but I do use frits and red angobe). It does not mean I gather stones, smash them and grind. I just mix ready igredients. Sorry I was not accurate in my first post.
for ex. in my glaze below there are frit, talc, nepheline syenite, kaoline, quartz, zircopax, bentonite.

That set looks awesome, the only thing I worry about is it may need to come with two cups, and the Yazumashi also looks a little small. But then again I think I am in the minority here as a person who usually uses 80%+ or so of their kyusu's.

hi
thank you very much for comments
@AdamMY - you are right, I still have a problem with capacity. Usualy make items too big for tealovers and too small for big family needs:-) I started seriously measure capacity few month ago and "my eye" sometimes cheat me. Well... in fact there are 2 cups but it was more easily to make pic (for me).
@Chip - Houjin? not yet, now (when we talk about teawares) there are jars and portable clay stove for water in my mind.
Nice you visited mu blog. Unfortunately it is not in English but reasons should be clear;-)
regards
andrzej
