Asisstance buying a new kyusu

by Lukian » Sep 12th 14 10:46 pm

Hi,

I have to buy a new Kyusu because my old one broke recently.

Somehow I can't find a new Kyusu that I like. So I'm hoping
that I will get some assistance here.


It should be 160ml - 180ml (max).

A stelnes steel mesh. Obi or cup.

What I don't like at all is Banko
or Hagi. Or any other "klingonish"
style.

Something pure ad minimalistic.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Kind regards

... how 'bout "Vulcanish"? :mrgreen: live long and brew ...

Welcome to TeaChat!

If you are willing to try Sasame screened kyusu, there is a litany of kyusu available at http://www.artisticnippon.com in your size range. But be careful, somehow one kyusu becomes 2 becomes 4, etc.

What do you mean by "Klingonish"? None of my kyusu have interesting foreheads, or any foreheads for that matter! :shock:

... although, I do follow Klingon ritual, when a kyusu "dies" I yell out a long ARRRRRRRGGGG ... to of course tell those kyusu who passed before him/her, that he/she is coming to join them.

This can be bit awkward in some settings. :mrgreen:

And when it's pon-far time, I like to put all of my pots in the cabinet and wait a day or two. If I'm lucky, I find a new yunomi when I open it up! :lol:

When making Klingon tea in any kyusu, all my guests die ... :cry:

You just need to stop inviting redshirts over for tea...

That looks perfect for brewing a strong Klingon blood tea!

this is my Kyusu, It was made by Jason Hess, a prominent wood fire artist and ceramics professor. This piece is made as art first/ teapot second, though it makes great tea. Jasons teapot style during this time are characterized by exaggerated features, strong throwing marks, and broad surfaces to catch fly ash. I was lucky enough to get a great deal on this pot when Jason was being exhibited in the museum I was working for and this is one of the pieces featured during a show in 2008.

I think it's awesome! What do you brew in it? Looks like it doesn't have a screen...?

It does have a very interesting steampunky almost cast iron look about it. Nice contrast to the green tea you have next to it.
