An attachment with no scroll bars is around 500 pixels.

A web hosted photo can be around 640, which is what I set the max for.

how wide by how tall? Sorry, I'm sure there are technical terms for all of this, but I don't know them.

I use this bigger dimension because I think that it is better for seeing details on pots and I am sorry for make some of you scrolling up and down.

Herb_Master_ double walled fair cup was also my idea when you have expressed your requirement on fair cup to keep tea hot for longer time- kind of thermos cup. Yes, I will try combination of bark out side and nacre inside. But like nacre it appears only sometimes due to unpredictability of woodfiring process.

I have put pictures of pieces from last firing to photobucked. If you will have any questions or observation please let me know.

Thank you Tead_Off for posting your new pots here. What tea does fits for you to this tea caddy?

Here is 300ml teapot with the same shino glaze and black lid for modest contrast.

Petr,

I put some organic Thai green tea inside of that one, but, will use it for Korean green tea after my trip to Korea. I love using all your things. They look good, feel good, and, it's nice to know the maker!

I should try some good Thai tea- I have kind of prejudice to them and I would like to get over that.

Here are two other...

I will bring some for you to Korea. I like the Burmese green tea much more but I cannot buy it here, only in Burma.

Awesome Petr!

I wanted to ask, your small pot/cup set, are those Japanese influenced like a shiboridashi for Gyokuro? Or Korean influenced? Regardless, thaey are stunning.

Thank you Chip,
It is hard to say which tea culture has stronger influence on my work. It is still in progress as my tea experiences are. But if I should choose between Japanese or Korean influence so for now I can say Korea is more important. I try to achieve the same feeling but in my own style. Actually, at the present time I drink more Chinese and Taiwanese tea so I also work on ripening those Tea-tastes and cultures in to my pots too.

But this one is "by Japanese". I also like MatCha...
