New teaware

May 1, 2007 · 3 Comments

I got some new teaware today…. since I have tea guests coming tomorrow, and I didn’t even have anything to serve them with!

I opted for the nicer looking stuff.  I could’ve bought dirt cheap cups, but they really do look nasty.  Now in contrast, my gaiwan looks awful… but oh well.  I’ll survive, for now anyway.

I also got a teapot from L

He kindly gave it to me as a gift.  He made a few dozen of them (special ordered) and gave me one for free.  I appreciate that 🙂

It’s even got his own chop on it

    Very nice indeed, what a generous gift. The good sentiment can definitely heighten the enjoyment of even a piece which is already pleasant.

    I actually like the gongdaobei, you know. Perhaps it’s my inner wabisabi waiting to get out…

    But my gongdaobei looks fine… it’s the gaiwan (not shown!) that looks terrible!

    Nice set and teapot!  I have always liked that kind of JDZ flowery decorative patterns.
