Wonderful hand feel and beautiful ash lines from the fire and ash. Great orange, yellow and subtle red flash. It has a satin matte blue-green liner glaze.
This piece was fired in a Japanese noborigama kiln in California. The piece fired for ~ 30 hours. Noborigama kilns are fired using an ancient firing technique used in Asia in the 5th century!
My wood-fire pieces are literally one of a kind and simply can not be re-produced exactly even if I wanted to. The claybody, firing, wood used, placement in the kiln could all be replicated and the kiln would still choose to "glaze" and fire the piece differently.
The buildup of wood-ash throughout the firing melts and naturally glazes the pot. It gives the teabowl its beautiful, one of a kind, rustic finish !
Food, microwave and dishwasher safe.
