Re: Show Off Your Teaware Displays

In the last two images I am curious about the shigaraki-like highly textured bowls on the lower left and right (second from last image, image won’t load), and the vine handled teapot in the last image.

Re: Odor from a Hagi cup

If its a 'nasty' smell, then it could be that they have been stored away when there was still moisture in the piece. In this case exactly the same happens as with any other object, bacteria growth..

Re: Show Off Your Teaware Displays

The following cupboards are not so fancy, but keep in mind they're kitchen cabinets ;) Lately i've been adding some bizen cups and bits to the collection, and surprisingly the neriage pieces are very pleasant to use.

Re: Tetsubin

It took me a couple of years, but i finally managed to find a second chagama that i fancy.

Hope you enjoy. Maker is Seiko Sato. Herons and what i assume to be pine-cones (or maybe armadillos :D ).

Quite the unusual colored hagi by Eiichi Shibuya.. (i'll see if i can get that with phone camera ).
Finally managed to make some photo's :arrow: The crackles are quite subdued - hard to get on photo, that's why they're pretty shiny.

Its 3" round (without the spout and handle), ±115ml and has a ball type filter. I snatched it somewhere around the start of 2015, Shawn ...

On the other hand i am comfortable using pieces with kintsugi. Anyone actually know what happens to the epoxy wh...
