Re: Yixing

TeaTotaling I'd consider this pot awesome for example: http://zishaartgallery.com/product/研究级高级工艺美术师-丁亚平-za0164/ And it would cost me at least $2000. At least somebody here said that all pots without a price tag would cost +$2000. The "ordinary" F1 pots they sell cost nearly $500, and are often not...

Re: Yixing

Looks more like a modern pot to me. The calligraphy looks handmade to me (you can see the lines they used to get the characters in the right position), so it's not a bad pot for €40. Let's wait until I can take a look at the inside / underside and ask on Facebook. In less then a day I am ready to a...

Re: Yixing

pantry Maybe Taobao is as bad as it's reputation... I don't know. Hopefully, their customer protection is not that bad. More likely it’s because you can’t ship anything to Germany or Europe with normal post, only courier services, which cost a lot more... your book with DHL is probably 80$ only for...

Re: Yixing

@Mark-S
From my understanding, these marks were used as a way to match lid to body after firing.

What do you think of this pot? It's too small / expensive for me but it's kind of interesting.

Re: Yixing

@Mark-S
No it is not cone shaped. I merely filed out the bits of clay inside hole. Don’t ruin your pot by trying to completely reshape the air hole.

@Mark-S

I don’t have any pictures. What are you expecting to see? Your pot isn’t rare or valuable so I wouldn’t overthink it unless your planing to resell it.

Re: Yixing

TeaTotaling I noticed that tall 80’s duanni pot from ZAG was sold. Did you end up buying it? I’ve been trying to convince myself to buy that LQER hongni pot but ultimately decided against it. I came to the conclusion that it probably wouldn’t see much use due to size and price (fear of breaking). M...

Re: Yixing

I used a yixing teapot for the first time. I received mine bronze grade zini from chanting pines. I have one coming from Bok pretty soon. The teapot is 120ml so I put 5 grams of leaf in and the pour speed using tea was 9-10 seconds. There was no scalding myself and the whole experience was very enj...
