Not really, unless someone here owns some Gyokusendo items.

Umm ... looks like there may be too many treasures out there for us to make up our minds. :!:

Perhaps you could share with us some 'treasure' you are pining for and would like to one day own.

Personally, there are many pieces posted by members that have really made me jealous. :mrgreen: As I recall some, I will likely post more. Yesterday I was reminded of this Seigan blue porcelain chawan by Stentor ...

Our TeaDay started with a lovely brewing of Aoi from the O-C. It brewed up nicely in a Petr snakeskin kyusu and cup set. Teakitties visited the TeaTable this morning creating some "kaos."

Hm, there are so many, among other I'm thinking about Petr shiboridashi, Eichii Rock yunomi and a Nakao Galaxy glaze chawan...

My preciousssssssssssssssssssssssssssss :twisted:

There are many pieces posted by members that I have liked very much. Most recently and most notably must have been this cup and saucer set by Hokujo, as posted by JeiKun4114 and Ambrose.
I love this so much that I am having two of them made for me. It is in the same style as a Hokujo shiboridashi I own, so these pieces would make a really nice set. I also love this type of bowl shape with a flared lip.

Honorable mention goes to David R.'s beautiful Japanese ceramic plates and bowls. They really add atmosphere to the tea setting, not to mention they serve an obvious practical purpose.

There are many more...

There are so many lovely things here, from the highly polished to the subtly matte, sleek curvaceous to humbly lumpy, and I won't bore you with the 20 photo version of this reply....

One that I wanted to post didn't quote properly because the image was an attachment, but these work nicely as well

Now enjoying some 2010 Spring Wu Liang Mtn - Xue Dian Mei Lan - Yunnan 'green' tea from Norbu, brewed in a little tokoname teapot that exercises like this one may soon send to TeaSwap, and drunk from my new Seigan blue hagi cup.

Well, for me it has to be one of Tim's teapot. Not easy to select one...
