Taking Tea on a Tuesday...Isphahan

.......a mixture this time....

..black and green...

...with violets.....




The smell is delightful.

You'll notice the cup too...

...my little "wabi sabi" raku tea cup...




...found in a great pottery gallery in Moissac...

"Le Pot a l'envers", 1 Place Durant de Bredon, 82200, Moissac. (tel. 05 63 39 82 51)

It was made by the ceramic artist Sandrine Sueres. Her blog is here

..well worth a visit :-)


Tea purchased at "Les Fondus de Chocolat" 14, Rue Sabaterie, 81100, CASTRES



良い一日を

Completely in love with the raku cup. Is it specially treated/fired to allow it to hold liquid?

Chris Gray said...

The cup is glazed, inside and out, so it holds liquid perfectly :-)
