Thanks for all the warm greetings!
I am both elated and saddened that there aren't many tea related wares left. I've been obsessed with vase forms recently, so not many cups, etc. in the last firing. I've got more Yunomi, but many need wads ground off and I haven't made the leap to purchasing an angle grinder yet.
Made a few teapots yesterday, and while I was quite happy with the forms and function, I'm struggling with S-cracks in the bottoms when throwing the bodies off the hump. I'm going to work on shibs and gaiwans for the next firing, I've done some test pieces, but the wood kiln isn't very forgiving to thinly thrown pieces! Round lids don't fit well inside oblong cups.
Thanks again to all for checking out my pots.
