Have a good tea day/morning/evening
I can't buy anything all for a while now, but I stop in here every day to see what there is to see, and If anyone whose work I have doesn't show up for a while, I miss them!
It's very different from buying an item at a store, or even owning something by a great and famous artist. A little quiet friendship is made.
When I sip from my Corey Lum wan I always remember him playfully tipping the newly thrown chawan to his lips in the YouTube video and his warm and friendly words in our brief exchange, and I smile and lift the cup to him. When I pour from a Petr pot I think of his quick and kind responses to my questions, the excitement he feels and shares when he opens a new kiln, the person I've come to know just a little in here and on the website (good music!), and likewise tip a little prosit. Shawn's pieces, from a part of the world that I know well and miss, are full of his good humor and surprising grace (and familiar courage in extreme weather); I wave an imaginary mitten in the direction of my old home town. And my first really treasured teapot was from you, Andrzej, such a delight! And I remember our little friendly conversations, and smile at your young sons, your busy life with them, your sweet, friendly humility and your art, and your life, every time I use your wares. No big deal, it's just a natural part of things when I have tea now. Very nice.
The best clay, that makes the sweetest tea, has a lot of human warmth in it as well the skill and art that shaped it, I think. I think for many in here.
(And oh! - I can tell you that my little granddaughter, who likes to name my teaware, calls the yunomi and bowl from you Stern Volcano and Shy Lady. "From Ahnjay" [we googled the pronunciation]. So you can know that, if it pleases you a little. :) )
It's buying and selling, sure, that's the juice, but that's the other reason why it's always very good to see your lovely new work as it comes along.
Cheers!

Kikula - great post, I feel the same from my point of view. This kind of relation is for me very precious. I do not like big words but pottery is puting a part of "me" into a pice of soil. "Me" for itself mayby not exist but there is a moment of fully presence which is frozen in a pot. In rematch I can get your good thoughts you have over a cup of tea. This is inner level. I realy love it and I think mostly making teawares I can experience this. Outer level is an exchange of money and material objects. Important but not a sufficient reason to do that. Difficult matter but I hope I was somehow understandable:)

Received a few new pieces from Andrzej. I'm really liking how this pot handles green oolong.

+1 :D I've found the same thing as well. NPE also confirmed Andrzej's red clay seemed to really serve green wulong. The clay generally has a lingering fresh scent.

Congratulations on the new pieces!

Blessings!

Thanks Alucard for sharing and for your extraordinary patience (it took me "some" time to fulfill this order)
Thank you debunix and Scott for good words.
I was not posting here for a long time and I promise (or warning) - I will be more active since next week:)

A splendid display, indeed. It would be lovely to have such a group from which to pick a special pot--and just to see and appreciate the whole range of teawares.

I'm still waiting to find one that fits an empty niche in my collection (not many ' holes' left to fill) and that I spot before someone else snaps it up....not easy! Much nicer to see and touch first.
