tony,
i called the dock six gals, kurt, kevin caufield, bob fritz and me,
and we decided that you can just pay us the money for airfare
and trip to england...you come here...we will teach you to make
a teapot.
take two days.
then you can go right back home and get to work.
no sense making that long trip...hell, kerrie or colleen can
teach in, well, 15 minutes....colleen makes the best teapots
i have seen in ten years. no male extrusions. you won't even
get up your dander.
nice.
think about it.
sheila can stay at our home with sharlene and me. maybe some clayarter
will offer to take you in.

Dear mayor: I fooled you. I really want to go to England for the beer. the
teapots are a side issue. We all know what Yankee beer is like, so I'm
afraid Minnesota is out for now. Enter Craig Martell to defend the micro
breweries.
Just found out that 100 of the Twinnings teapots are in a show about a half
hour from here in Niagara on the Lake.
the reason I would like to research t-pots is that I have taken on a
teaching job 2 days a week for a quarter covering for Bruce Cochrane at
Sheridan School of Design and the assignment is "teapots".
If the Dockers t-pot is as good as you say I wouldn't mind a slide.
Sorry I can't offer them money but I do sexual favours. I'll take a photo of
one your teapots as well, but payment will have to be in some other form.
Two days for a teapot, eh!!!! Now, I know I'm a slow learner.
cheers,
Tony

Not to mention Yankee tea, a dismal infusion indeed
.. bleaah!

Never mind the Mayor and his Dock Six sirens... Tony,
keep that ticket to England: it's Brits who know tea
and teapots best.

off for my brew... :-)

The Brits are "Johnny come latelys" to tea and teapots. :^) Asia is
where they understand tea the best and have known it for the longest time ;^)

Quite right, but would anyone contemplating a similar
course of study have either the time or the inclination
to learn several oriental languages in preparation for
a trip to Asia? And once there, would there be such a
wide range of all cultures, epochs and style in such a
small area? Not to mention people like Edward Bramah
who know more about tea world-wide, than anyone could
believe.

So much simpler to come to the UK where we also have
some pretty impressive Asian collections alongside all
the English, European & New World pots. It is also much
more affordable to fly Toronto - London. My list
omitted everything East of Suez simply because of the
original question, which was less than enthusiastic
about Japanese pots as I recall... ;-)

Hey Mel!!

You lay your grubby little hands off Tony! You guys
have all the fun already and now you want MORE....???
Geez! Val Cushing was here a whole year and was packing
to go home before anyone (read =me) knew he was here...
At least now we have good notice of TC planning to come
over, so we will be able to cherish and cosset him
collectively...

DeLana visited last year. This year Veena, Jeff (from
the Philippines) Shirley Freed and a couple of clay
arters also called by... Sadly not long enough to talk
a lot or put the world straight, but great to meet at
last. Shake hands and look in the eye... Helps dispel
any doubts about who is talking and their true
personalities, rather than the projected one laid naked
here.

And what we don't know about peatots* just ain't worth
knowing... So you hush, laddie! Trying to spoil our fun
and diminish British brewers' and distilleries'
profits. Shame on you!

Janet Kaiser - *Apparently used to call teapots this as
a child... Cousin Peter was pee-pee... No wonder I tend
to being all wind and water! ;-)

Ah so true, but we learnt from Asia first. Certain people were resistant
to Tea culture; witness a certain historical event in Boston! :-)
