Tea bowl/Bourbon tumbler

45.00

This tumbler was fired in a Japanese style Noborigama kiln for ~ 30 hours. The kiln and shelves become saturated with ash which can drip down on the pieces in the kiln.  This cup lucked out and received a kiln tear drip on one side and beautiful ash marks on the other side.

Noborigama kilns are fired using an ancient 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 this piece its beautiful, one of a kind, rustic finish!
