Is the one you have there the one with or without the interior water tray? The one I own merely has a drain hole and tube. In fact, I really enjoy the full range of Lin's Ceramics wares. Most often I see them at Tzu Chi (http://www.us.tzuchi.org/us/en/) tea settings in Taiwan. They function well and have their own unique aesthetic.

Blessings!

with drainage hole and tube :D it saves me a lot of trouble from bringing the whole tray to wash all the time

Gonna spin bowls etc.

Exciting! I just looked up images of cherry burls, and they're every bit as gorgeous as I'd suspected just from the name. Wow.

Just bought this to replace my slightly soulless small bamboo tray. Been watching eBay japan now for a while (about a year). ...just fell in love with the grain on this one, and snapped it up instantly.....looks like sand that's been rippled by water. Will post some pics of it in action soon :lol:

Oh, that's lovely!

I'd worry a bit about scratching it with my Oni-Hagi. I'd like to know whether that turns out to be a realistic worry or not. I like pretty wood as much or more than pretty ceramics....

I don't have any rough pieces of teaware....its all smooth clay and porcelain, so it should wear subtly with daily use 8)

Love that grain though :mrgreen:

Oh the pot? yeah its the Joaka clay........superb clay. Makes the body of the tea super strong! Really good for tea with high Unami flavour.

debunix,
So often in a Hagi tea ware shop or potter's sales room I see the potter or his wife busily sanding the bottoms of tea ware. As I spend time looking it's just a background sense of that delicate sandpaper slowly rotating around a koudai.
Hagi is listening to your worries!
