Some new pieces. Been reading Edmund de Waal's White Road recently, and must have been smitten - mostly white porcelain in this load.
Thanks for looking, as always.

Nice work! Look forward to seeing what you make after you read The Hare with Amber Eyes. Cheers.

Well, if it worked like that, I'd start reading the catalogue of the National Palace Museum right now! Truth be told, I am still stuck in Germany with de Wall - finding it a bit slow going after the Jingdezhen chapter ;-)

Sooner or later I'll decide to buy something, I promise!

Hi William, thanks! Your feedback is already a most valuable support!

Yes, oxidation celadons can be very beautiful, even if they are somewhat more "flat" and "motionless" than real celadons. And as I am learning, the same glaze varies a lot depending on which type of porcelain it is used on. Lots to play with there...

Wow, hadn't seen before that Inge Nielsen posts here. I have a couple of her pieces. Ms. Nielsen's skill with porcelain and teapots exhibits perfect control and symmetry, thin walls and none of the flaws (no bumps, lumps, bubbles, crooked handles, no ill-fitting lids) that I see in other European potters who charge, well, a lot more money. I appreciate the many years of practice to achieve her level of skill when I use my pieces. The gaiwan I own is on my tea table.

Nothing better than a testimonial as to the functionality of such lovely work. My teaware shelves are overflowing, so I've been waiting for just the right piece...

I'm a fan of the "dirty porcelain" and the "light grog" clays. But I drink tea alone so I need small volume pots.

Thanks, Cwyn, for that very flattering post :D It's in the back of my mind to downsize my pots a bit and make some 90 ml pots for you to peruse. That 120 ml light grog teapot in my Etsy shop was made with that in mind, but then - oops - it just grew too generous in volume... I know many people drink tea alone, and around 100 ml seems to be the preferred size.

Opened the kiln again this morning, some new tianmu bowls saw the light of day.

Lovely pieces. I've been delayed in photographing and sharing the two lovely cups that I recently purchased, but not delaying in enjoying tea out of them; this year has been exceptional for wildflowers after too many very dry years, so almost all of my photo time has gone to them. But here are a sneak preview....

I love the glittering of the teas in these cups with their finely detailed glazes, but so hard to capture in a still image! Both feel great in the hand and to the lip.

Debunix, a belated thanks for the kind feedback.

I have put many pictures of my newly fired pieces on my blog http://www.potterybyin.blogspot.com. I need to thank the kind person who nudged me to try to make something for the Golden Teapot competition in Taiwan later this year (he knows who he is!). At first the thought paralysed me, then it practically obsessed me... at about the same time, I was introduced to the work of Yohei Konishi and Daisuke Shiraiwa, and these two happy incidents have kept me at the wheel for many weeks now. Feedback much appreciated as always!

I must say, Ms. Nielsen, your last works are simply mesmerizing.

The influence of Yohei Konishi's works is evident and, at least for me, welcomed. The most incredible thing is how quickly you developed this style, and how beautiful your works are, even after a so short time lapse. Keep going!
