Very handsome work, maple. Sure would like to know what those fascinating pots are.
@teanik for sure ~

Late Qing - CangJi - Pear -

Check the bottom image - you can see the line is continue broken after kintsukuroi. I've prepared it will be full break in nearly future.

Moderm - Taiwan/Nantou(南投) - CaiMingNan (蔡明男)

Lion Lid with cloud decorate - 坐獅祥雲 - it's one of my favor collection. And I broke it once i relocated.

Thanks for sharing, @maple. The shape, the look of the clay, the solid construction, and the long skirt under the lid of the Pear really make it stand out. Love the calligraphy. And the cloud motif on the second pot is unlike anything I've seen. Fabulous pots.

This silver replacement lid is gathering a rather wonderful (in my eyes) patina…

Better not. I had some good connections to do this… drawing by myself > 3D print test and then a cast in silver. Not sure what would cost if not a friend - or if someone would even bother doing it.

Thank you I was wondering about the process. It looks incredible with the wide lid on that pot, so does the clay. Does the knob get very hot?

Indeed. This old Hongni clay excels with many teas. Perfect Allrounder for larger tea parties.

A bowl that unfortunately arrived delivered in several pieces due to no padding inside the wooden box. Glued it back together but without any golden powder to keep a more rustic look.

Almost did not notice it, looking at it superficially. Nice job.

Experimental tin repair. I've used a lead-free plumbing solder here. It took some effort to get it right, since the melted solder has quite a lot of surface tension and prefers to form ball like shapes. I was surprised how much torching the zini plate have withstanded in the end without cracking.
