I was recently priveledged to receive an order from a very prestigious hotel. Apparently one of their valued guests was in search of a special, personalised gift. I was honoured to receive the commission.
The result was this left handed "Kyusu" japanese tea pot, with two matching cups. A kyusu has a handle one one side, and it is very rare to find one which can be used in the left hand. You may remember the cups from an earlier blog entry.
On each peice we have fired the logo of the hotel in gold and under the foot of each peice we have fired on the name of the customer and date.
We received a lovely note telling us how pleased the client was with the result. It has been well worth the effort.
