I love the colour, and would definitely like to have a pot in such a "pig liver" colour.
they have both darker reds and orange/reds. Even the same clay can have a different color depending on firing temp and placement in kiln. I would think even a workshop produced pot by this potter would be quite good. Why would he want his name on garbage? He's known as a good potter.
