Hagi SO #11, Seigan Blue Tebineri (pinched)

by Chip » Dec 1st, '09, 16:05

Hagi SO #11 Ao Hagi Tebineri Yunomi and Kyusu
Signature Series Limited Edition
Seigan Blue Pinch Teacups and Teapots


EDIT: There are still FOUR Yunomi-s, so a great selection to choose from!

Wow, these are gorgeous! Like uncut sapphires. Stunning to the infinite degree.

Another long awaited SO is Tebineri in Seigan Blue. These are dramatic to say the very least, I think you will agree. Tebineri refers to the way the master artisan pinches a blob of clay versus throwing it on a wheel. The results are always unique and one of a kind.

The sizes run a pretty wide range, but these are NOT Guinomi as is more commonly seen. This is the first time I have actually seen them in actual teacup sizes. The glazing is awesome (running out of superlative adjectives, heh). Hmmm, shimmering like uncut sapphires.

My experience with Tebineri tells me you will love how these feel in hand, so smooth yet textural. You get to know the feel of the cup unlike with a wheeled, smooth cup. Hard to describe until you actually hold one.

Also 5 Tebineri Seigan Blue Kyusu-s. These are not your average looking kyusu, really amazing. Of the dozen or so kyusu I have at my disposal, I have to say my fave is a Tebineri that I simply call da bombe!

These are all numbered Signature Series works (the wood box is hand numbered in Sumi)!!!

Prices are also variable this time around, so to be fair, they are priced individually. Keep in mind, these are very limited and very labor intensive. I have never seen Yunomi in this glaze/form, so I had to look at the few Sansai Tebineri Yunomi I have seen as I researched pricing. Generally the Sansai version has been going for 85-145 USD. Mago and I went back and forth on the pricing of these several times as usual. He has offered a very fair price range for these that I feel is well below resale value and market value as well. I think the prices are extremely reasonable!

And of course, you can combine with other SOs.

ORDERING INFO Hagi Special Offers

Hi, me again, so you know how to order (if you participated in past offers, just humor me and let me remind you ). I did not want the simple procedure to get lost in that long rambling post. 8)

Ordering is pretty simple. This is the way it must be done per the vendor's request. Thanks for your cooperation.

1) Pick your piece by number. Include at least 2 or 3 alternates in order of preference. If you want 2 pieces, you can order 2 but your second one will be pending satisfying others' requests for one. Include 2 or more alternates for the second selection.

2) PM me with your preorder including the item numbers.

3) I will sort things out and PM you a brief order form to fill out which will include your shipping options. Then return PM it to me.

4) After receiving your order form, I will forward your order along with all the others to the vendor.

5) The vendor will email you with a Pay Pal invoice. Let me know if you do not have PayPal.

6) You pay the vendor directly, he ships items directly to you from Japan. This vendor is highly reputable and shipping from Japan is safe and easy.

7) You receive your order and enjoy for the rest of your life!!!

OK, a special sale, why buy one when you can buy two for twice the price. (Contact quote paraphrased) :wink:

Let me see what can be done. :mrgreen:
