Plural of Kyusu is simply kyusu. :mrgreen: So you add clarity in the context. Of course, Kyusu is Japanese for teapot ... is there a name for Korean teapot?

The Korean word is ch'akwan for teapot. This is a back handled one.
Ch'at chonja is side handled.

Thanks, next time we are with Korean friends, I will have to ask for pronunciation.

Saggar fired teapot from Kim Eung Chul. Beautiful finishes can be produced with the use of a saggar, which is a type of box that the item is fired in. Essentially, it prevents any debris during the firing of the kiln from falling on it. Saggars can also be loaded with material which combusts during the firing giving certain effects to the item. This is a particular beauty, I think.

It only seems right that they are all gone. I lingered long on a few pieces but with an upcoming return trip to Taiwan I have had to set aside some teaware money for the trip.

Teadoff, thank you for making the Seong il pieces available to the community here. The Korean aesthetic is rich and differs from the Japanese and Chinese/Taiwanese counterparts. There is a wonderful sense of whimsy, vivacity, and beauty in the pieces!

Blessings!

Quite true, and the Korean teaware is probably the least accessible to many westerners. I still have works by Eung Chul who is also a very creative potter. Hopefully, I will be able to get more work from him, too.

There are also a few Yixing teapots left. Thank you to all those who bought some of these.

+1 except that I didn't just linger. I purchased a red copper teapot and cup, as well as a server in the same glaze. Sometimes I choose my tea according to what brews well in this pot, or in my serene copper glazed Eung Chul pot and server.

Can you tell us what teas you like in the various Seong il and Eung Chul teapots that you have? Are there any teas that just don't work with any of them for you? I know you have both unglazed and glazed interiors.
