I will be posting some new work by Seong il in the next day or so. Teapots, servers, and cups, some with designs not seen here before. Please check in and have a look. We also take custom orders. Thanks.

that set of 3 80ml cups seems like a steal for $36 :shock:

Could I possibly get more pics ? Particularly the inside. Or you could just describe it to me if no pics handy. thanks!

The cups are with Seong il so I can't photograph the inside but all of the ones that were offered have the same shino glazing on the interior with larger areas of the beige color allowing the color of the tea to be seen. If you go into the Sold folder, under Tea cups, you will see some other cups from the same firing and can see into them a bit better. The price is very reasonable, I agree. Thanks for looking.

I added a new link to TO's post above, and as TokyoB mentioned, the one in the OP is working too.

Did I get Server #12, do you want the long or short version?

Let me guess... the "short version" is "yes" and the "longer version" is "yes, plus I got....<list items here>"??

:lol:

Beautiful stuff as always...!

Short version, yes. Long version, I have wanted a Seong-il faceted server (which I envisioned using as a yuzamashi for other faceted Seong-il pieces) ... so I sorta placed a pre-special-order. Which as it turns out is an anniversary gift from the Mrs.

So far, this was the only selection this round, having already acquired a nice little collection from previous rounds.

I asked Seong il to give me a demo on skype of how the handle feels when in use. He filled the server with water and I watched as he grabbed, lifted, and, poured. I couldn't see any ergonomic difficulty at all. In fact, it may be a tad easier to pour than the open ring style handle we are all used to.

On the smaller teawares especially, it's hard to really get my fingers around the usual loop for a good stable grip, and I end up pinching the loop and trying to manipulate it as if it were a little flat piece like this. The new looks a lot more functional for big fingered people handling small containers of very hot water.

I wonder if you could post a photo of the teaware you are speaking of. The smallest teapot I have is 60ml. I can easily slip my index finger all the way through the loop handle to get a firm grip. If you have unusually large fingers, I guess it could be more difficult. But, the smaller teapots will have proportionally smaller looped handles.
