Repost from what I just wrote in the porcelain thread:
My latest and first Korean acquisition from Kwon Hyuck Moon via Gallery Daunjae.

A pleasure to look at and use, just the right amount of imperfections and functionality!
I am going to watch the Korean pottery scene more closely from now on...

Beautiful pieces in this thread, have been looking at Seong-Il pots for a while, does anyone know how one would procure one nowadays, it seems the cone9 website hasnt been updated for about a year, tea urchin sells a couple but they're not exactly for me.

Sometimes Gallery Daunjae has some. And a few others to pick from.

Ordering was easy and painless, good and fast service.

Also seems to me that cross inspiration is quite heavy among Korean potters, so a lot of them use similar styles and methods, so if you are not hung up on Seong Il...

Thats true, been checking sporadically ever since you posted about yours, beautiful by the way, still havent found 'the one' though there are a few I'm quite fond of.

More beautiful teaware from Hong Seong-il. I believe that it was listed as a gaiwan. Whatever it’s called it’s lovely to look at as well as to use.

I like the look of those. Gaiwan looks easy to use also.

So here are the pics of the Hong Seong-il pot I got from the fundraiser, debunix's photos are much better but I thought I'd share anyway :lol: was surprised how thick the walls are, beautiful little pot

Doesn't show up on camera but some of the dark specks have a sort of oily irridescence to them, really stunning!

Yay! I saw yesterday that USPS finally showed it as delivered. Customs had time to brew gallons of tea with it before they released it to you. I hope it livens up your tea sessions! It has mostly been 'fed' with roasty oolongs....and it holds in heat nicely for infusing those teas.

Have been brewing roasted oolongs on it as well, very good heat retention, very nice for wringing out the last bits.

Some qidan I had in it yesterday

I have a Seong-il kyusu from that period which I’ve neglected in favor of newer smaller pots. I tried it today with hk style roasted stems. That’s a less intense tea than regular yancha so I can drink more of it. This pot is an excellent clay and size for yancha.

Notice how the spirals rise up from the base.

Oh Janice, what is a lovey little pot, love those spirals. It is gorgeous. We need to revisit his pots in our collection. I adore the whimsical qualities of his wares.

I spent a lot of time drooling over pots like that one and pretty much having to say over and over again, 'Can't buy them all!'
