Is it your own Yixing's collection ?

Steven Dodd said...

That's quite the collection. I hope they all get used and not just display.

Do you have a stand for all of your yixing or is this movie magic and it's the same stand reused? :]

I'd like to know how you store/display your yixing. Do you have a cabinet of some sort? I'd love to see a picture of it.

Yes, Philippe, this is my collection. I posted it in response to Maiqd request on my experience with yixing.
The truth is, I love the pot more then what goes in it. Like puerh, they change by aging and caring. So, I will be posting stories I did discover thru my years with them.

And Thank you Steven, surely they have their turn/moment "Seasonally". They all have their own stand and will that a pic of where they reside.

toki , this is a nice collection of teapot and also a nice photo : it looks like a wallpaper ;-)

bejita said...

but some of the teapot ar too "shiny " no ?

toki said...

Hi Bejita. The shine on a pot is related to the temp which it was fired. Higher temp create more shine in general with good clay, of course. You can judge it by the sound from the pot.

Also, the careful usage of a higher quality pot (usually antique pot) can result in a jade like finish. Which was praised by yixing collector in the Ming/Qing period

Nice pots!

Thanks Marshain! How's Shanghai? There is a famous yixing museum/galley which is run by a yixing craftsman which hit the jackpot. The Colonial House is 3 levels with garden and workshop. Heard of it? T

Fabulous collection, Toki! The Romeo & Juliet are stunning looking. Are they back from repair in Yixing?

toki said...

Juliet is waiting for me to pick-her-up on my next trip back to HK. Thanks P! -T
