Of course! No problem, just price will slightly allow for your destination :) :)
Oh, perhaps I should have asked the price first! :twisted:

The cups look similar to the one drippy you sent?

Yes, just maybe even smaller and glaze has turned out darker and more translucent.

Distinctly new, and still utterly lovely.

And how cute is this set, with the little pot that looks glazed with cream?

(edited later because teaChat didn't like the google+ address that my web brower thought was fine)

Hi petr,
I love your new work. I was wondering. Could you tell me how you use your charcoal pot to heat your water. I would love to try that myself.

Thanks

Hi senchalover,

With some practice,It is quite easy...I have a plan to write about my experiences on this field on my blog. But here are some basics...

I use Czech, higher quality hard wood (oak) charcoal.
Before using, I select good from bad- moving out all "slag" pieces, too small pieces and I broke too big ones. Then I clean coal dust under a water and dry it well (sun or oven). If I am making tea inside, I light up the charcoal on cooktop, after two-three minutes I move it in to my stove and wait few more minutes to see if lightning was enough. Then I put my ceramic kettle on the stove and I start to prepare tea, teapot, cups and all what I will need for my tea seasion...If everything goes well then I have my first cup in twenty minutes from begining. I stoke piece or two of new of the charcoal if it is needed...if I have a my tea outside I just find some chips of dry wood, light it up, put some smaller pieces of charcoal on it and with some blowing it start in five-ten minutes too.

Here you can see some pics of some sets which we have already made. Some stoves (those more elegant) are Mirka's work:)https://picasaweb.google.com/1182362173 ... veNaVareni
