Treasures 1-7 were made and donated by our TeawareArtisans for this TreasureHunt!

Treasure 8 was donated by an eager vendor.

Many thanks to all 8 contributors!
We are really lucky to have such a generous and nice group of artisans (and vendors!) pottering about here at TeaChat. Thanks to all and to Chip for arranging this! :mrgreen:

And the TreasureHunt is officially over! Well, the guessing phase anyway.

Now the waiting phase begins! So please be patient.

... or here tomorrow ...

Considering I have not even gotten all the guess PMs open yet (and there were a LOT today), obviously the 8 lucky winners have not yet been determined.

Heh, I thought "Hot Legs" was a reference to that picture he posted of the super-melty pots or jars where that beautiful turquoise glaze flowed right down the 'legs' :lol:

In any case, I was pleasantly surprised at how many I knew without having to do any research! That was a lot of fun to discover, and, in some cases, frightening, as I had to wonder, "How do I know this...??"

Google hot legs with url TeaChat in advanced search, there is the number one hit. Or was, now there are likely a few more since TreasureHunt began. :mrgreen:
"How do I know this...??"
This is good to know. It shows we are connecting on different levels with the TeawareArtisans, which was the goal of TA forum in the first place.

Treasure 2 by Shawn of GreenwoodStudio. A beautiful wood fired shino teacup/wan to a lucky TreasureHunter!
Teacup, wood-fired iron rich stoneware w/ shino and iron brushwork

This one has been glazed with a nice smooth shino glaze that takes on golden hues. It has some very minimal iron brushwork decoration. It measures 3-3.5"w (because of its asymmetry) x 2"t and holds approx. 7 oz at full capacity (to the rim)
Winner TBD and announced later!!! :twisted:
