Hello.
Just starting to get into Korean ceramics this year, so excuse my amateur-ity.
This is a wood fired tea pot made by Park Yeon Tae from Mungyeong, North Gyeongsang. I met him and his wife during the chasabal festival this May.
It's my first time using it today, and found some balhyocha from 2 years ago to brew with.

I got a tea pot and a porcelain tea canister from him. But he had a displayed of beautiful works I wanted to keep them for memory.

I've never seen his work in person, just been admiring from afar...

This one is one of my favorites:

This teapot has a neat 'personality'--the gold knob on top makes it seem quite playful.

And wow, some of the other works here are AMAZING. This one is just WOW.

I simply LOVE Gaeun-yos works, especially the rough clays, shinos and buncheong wares!
Here is my small sidehandle. I ordered another one from Gallery Daunjae too. Can't wait to receive it.

I have 2 Hong Seong-il hobin sets. I purchased the first one from TeadOff and the second one on on Teachat. My iPhone camera doesn’t capture the blue glaze properly. The pieces are definitely bluer and prettier in person. They’re both made from onggi clay, which I believe has been mixed with stoneware to get a good texture for tea ware.

The cups balance on top of the hobins so I can fit more tea ware in the cabinet.

I didn't comment this one when first posted because that was a superbusy time (like most time currently). The contrast between the very modern metallic angular shapes and the unglazed earth of the ceramic is dramatic and wonderful.

They're already very pretty. The second one must be very impressive in person with more blue in that dark finish.

Very practical for the TAD-sufferer.

Most attractive, Janice. Do you hold the hobins with bare fingers?

(I often burn myself with gaiwans; so, I ask.) Really look lovely. Cheers

I use a cloth to protect my fingers unless I’m steeping Japanese greens. I’m usually ok with gaiwans which don’t lend themselves to finger protection. My favorites are from Shawn McGwire which are not just beautiful but easy to hold and pour.

While I was searching the Internet for information on another teapot, I found this gorgeous one. Can this actually be used for tea, or is it mainly for decoration purposes? What would this be worth?

I found a similar design (not a teapot) on this website for $270. The teapot however would be cheaper.

Here's a chawan by Im Mann Jae that I picked up on a tea tour of Korea several years ago. Matcha Yugen n the bowl.
