This is my favorite gaiwan, a hand-painted eggshell porcelain beauty I bought on a trip to China last November. The ironic thing is that I really got into Chinese teas AFTER the trip, hence the only acquisitions include a yixing teapot (way too large--200ml), this gaiwan, and some Long Jing (which was good, but is now all gone).

I'll post photos of my other teaware once the sun is out here in Seattle :)

No kidding, huh? And the pic does not do it justice. That's going to make it harder to resist the others, isn't it? :twisted:

It holds about 125-145 ml comfortably. When FP states capacity in his listings, it should be noted that he measures flush to the lip. Actual capacity listed on this was 7.4oz.

teashionista, geekgirl, Tim - all very beautiful wares!

teashionista, it's particularly fun to see a "new" gaiwan design. I love those morning glories...

Is that one of the marbled stoneware cups with the glazed inside? I've been drooling over the ones like that on his Etsy site. It looks like it has a lovely texture on the outside.

yes it is. The inside of this one is glazed a pale green. The stoneware is very smooth but still textural, and it has a very nicely balanced weight to it.
