Befitting of a Shakespearian drama...


A Mid-Summer Stormy tragedy.... Final ending of Juliet.
This Evening, my beloved "Juliet" pot kissed the floor after a dramatic strangle with toki. All caused by a thunderstrike and a lightning bow.

Oh no! Can she be healed/repaired? What did you use "Juliet" for?

My sincere condolences.

Losing a pot is a sad affair.

toki said...

Juliet is a young yiwu pot.... I will try to fix her with either brass or gold gilding in Thailand.

MarshalN said...

Oh, that shot with Juliet broken is so sad.

Do all your pots have names?

toki said...

This is the only pair I have, and named.

Maybe one day when I grow old, will name all of them....

It is sad when this happens. I recently broke a Qing Shui Ni pot before even seasoning it! I replaced it with a pair, one 100cc and another 120cc.

toki said...

Xuereb1- have you try repairing the pot? Or using it in a different way? Trashing a Qing vessel seems a bold decision....

Ummmm...it looks more like a "Juliet" now than before.

Condolences for the teapot -

I remember seeing this Ophelia painting somewhere, but I can't remember. Who is the artist ?

Jean

Thank you Castalleta and all.... I will put her back together.

It was a larger than life experience to see it.
