I would like to recommend http://www.japanesehandcraft.com/

Though not a huge selection of teaware, I think that all pieces there
are artistic quality. Nice thing about it is that listed prices include free international shipping (insured ) so you know exactly the cost of your purchase delivered to your door. Although I bought only one item from Mr. Yutaka until now, I have to say I was really impressed with the way he does business.

Any way you can find the websites? When i do a search I get more then a few and I don't want to post the wrong one.

http://stores.ebay.com/MAGOKORODO
http://www.zencha.net/index.php
Here's two other Magokorodo sites. One is on Trocadero and the other is the Japanese language site.

http://www.trocadero.com/magokorodo/catalog.html

http://www.magokorodo.jp/

Linked from the Japanese site is this one, but right now I get an error when trying to access it. Usually the page contains many yunomi and matcha chawan similar to whet is sold by their Ebay store.

When I have some free time next week at work I will try and organize these a little better. Right now it is starting to turn into a wall of text.

I don't know how I missed JHC when I suggested Zencha and Magokorodo. I've purchased many items from them and their products are artistic and their service is fantastic. I completely agree with your assessment of this vendor.

Since receiving my first two orders from Hojo over the last two days, I would place them high on the list as well

I suspect a serious lack of censorship over the speed/frequency of your buying habit! :mrgreen:

Where can I buy high quality yixing teapots, I would like some trustworthy vendors, I would assume www.essenceoftea.co.uk is one of them, but I would need a few more, I want to buy an early qing dynasty zhu ni, and buy it at a good price.
