Here is one small, very simple and quiet cup I was happy to got from Park Jong Il. You can also learn about this artist on this blog http://morningcranetea.blogspot.com/

Likewise, Brad. I hope that anyone more knowledgable on the subject will please enlighten us.

OK TIM, so this set has an actual name for the set/style? I know a bunch of members have this style set which was listed as "travel set." Any more info or translation? Thanks!

Thank you Petr and Victoria for sharing photos of Korean wares, etc. with us.

Chip,

Gwangju is a place in Korea. Maybe they made the set there.

A Traditional set of Hwagae Hagi ware, brew a high mountain wild Balhyicha side by side with my 2nd generation dai hong pao. Who's better? Of course the local won.

btw, chip- why is my previous set listed as "travel set" :roll: I know the Korean name, but can't type it here :wink: It's just a modern day Korean tea drinker's brewing vessel, mostly for Korean green or bird's tongue to be correct. Can't use it for any tea which requires hotter temp. brewing.

Nice ones TIM!

I don't know why Hankook lists the previously pictured sets as "travel sets." They could work for that, but would need a travel case of some kind for protection ... which would make a nice little kit actually. :mrgreen:

The travel sets aquired from Hankook have therefore never left the house.

How much water does your version hold, pot and cup? Thanks.

Here is set from pottery studio which belongs to Daeseungsa temple. It was gift from monk and I like it. Very ordinary and as you can see on picture below the potter there makes a lot of them. They have two kinds of pottery production there- this stoneware tea ware and onggi- pots for kimchi.

It seems like this type of set is fairly common as several members have now posted one?

Nice one!

And wow, that is a lot of teaware just stacked up like clay plant pots. Looks like some of these sets are in there as well ...

Another simple so called "travel set" from Hankook. Very precocious, holding 2 ounces. The brew vessel will hold a bit more, but the cup will only hold 2 ounces max.

Hello!
Thanks so much for this topic - before, I didn't know about this great contemporary pottery from korea, it really was an eye-opener!

Sadly, a small problem came along with my excitement (and the urge to buy something... :wink: ):
I hope this isn't too off-topic - but could someone be so kind to explain how to order from Hong Seong il's Website (http://blog.naver.com/ttogarii.do)?
There are so many absolutely wonderful items in the gallery :D , but on choosing "online shop" nothing is displayed, just a link to the gallery (which has prices, but no information about availability or how to order). Under this link are 9 pages indicated - which all have the same content - nothing but the link. :shock:

Maybe it's just a problem with my settings :oops: (though I can't figure what that may be...).
It would be great, if someone enlighten me!! Thanks so much!

I think the best solution is to email him and tell him you are interested in some things. His English is not great and his website is rather confusing, but, he will respond. Try to be patient.

I will see him when I go to Korea at the end of the month and will try to tell him about his website/blog and how confusing it is for buyers.

By the way, have a nice stay in Korea!

So it's not my PC (or me...).
I will try to mail him - when I'm finally able to choose :roll: . So hard to decide on just ONE teapot or ONE (set...) of cups.

just tried my little 'travel set' for a little shu puerh, because most of my other teaware here at work was dirty, used it for a very forgiving and flexible tea, and my fingers were not happy at the temperatures that were reached in the first few infusions.

I just used one with boiling water for oolong ... if you reach under it and place your thumb over the lid nob, it is not hot at all. :idea:

The steep before I thought I might scream when I held it with a 3 point method holding the sides and lid. :shock:
