A tea bowl, shino glaze, woodfired. 12 x 10 cm.
And here too, see, a little bit / that which can be good (the beholder)(who will hold?). As with the last: a pot it serves the function you give it, is it a bowl a cup? Do the flies eat the carcass, beware the carcass, show you there is a carcass; would you rather your protein from the carcass or the flies? And what would they?
Here is it's a teabowl (intended)(use it as a bowl ok; what it is not: the sides the inside angle much too acute to dig from with a spoon, the volume to little for anything but fingers; what it is: a lip for the lips, a foot for fingers to hold, an inside smooth to not wear down a tea whisk too quickly(they all wear down)and what I hope is contemplation. A bowl can serve tea it's much easier to make just a bowl)
Why do you like my posts why do I yours?
And this bowl (yes, a bowl) a glaze shino as in the previously posted, too of the same clay glaze kiln on the same shelf, fraternal twins as they are, and too different. This one in here it took the flame with it melted ash, the ash fluxed the glaze didn't make it run but did give color and more: crystals, though small.
Well. Ash induces crystals doesn't make them they're made (they're grown) in the cooling cycle as the glaze was melted then less then less now firm and then solid, along the way the metal oxides imparted by the wood (the wood it's wood and too so much more) and from the glaze and from the clay after the firing as it cools if to the right temperature at the right speed make this the crystals here spontaneously perhaps controllably I'm not that knowledgeable.
Too you can prepare crystallines I don't like them please prove me wrong, they are technically demanding good on you who have enough control I prefer to take credit for what the kiln gives, if you want to Make "crystalline glazes" it's a scheduled cooling and zinc oxide at a long enough time at a right enough (exact that is, not just enough) temperature the zinc grows makes crystals.
