It’s been many days since I blogged.  This is probably the longest break I’ve taken with blogging since I started this thing.

I’ve been rather distressed recently with a broken teapot.  Postal services are often your worst enemies, and in this case they’ve proven to be quite capable of destroying my teaware.  Of course, much of the blame lies with the person who sent this to me, and unfortunately, there is not much I can do now to fix this problem.  I used glue, but you can still see it.

Then again, in some ways, it’s not that bad.  I’m not a dealer.  This isn’t going to be sold again.  Resale value, therefore, has little meaning.  Of course, that doesn’t mean I’m not upset about it.

  1. I was recently the cause of similar tea pot vandalism. I was preparing tea in a new kyusu in the early morning and accidentally dropped the lid while pouring. I feel your pain. In my case, it was my own fault which is to a certain degree more difficult to bear. In the end, it’s only a teapot though… I can still brew tea in it. 🙂

    That is a beautiful pot. Would you mind divulging where you got it from?

  2. Sorry to see your teaware take a beating! I recently bought my first clay pot, so I can now sympathize. At least it’s not completely broken though. It’s still a functional teapot!

  3. I don’t have a measuring device — something like 200ml, I think. Yeah, I’m just glad it’s not completely broken, or that a more important part, like the handle or the spout, is not broken.
