Carl & Cory,

Thanks for taken a look and for posting your comments here, I appreciate it. Good luck with the firing Cory, sinks are certainly tricky.

My last firing was a good one...same glazes on different claybodies doing some nice things.

I recycle all of our clay here in the studio, inlcuding the students clay. I've been throwing the clay as it comes from the pugmill. As a result every pug load is different depending on who's throwing with what and when. As this hybrid clay works its way back into the recycle the clay changes yet again. I'm thinking of the concept of sourdough starter, a bit from each batch to "start" the next. The idea of an ever changing claybody would drive more potters nuts...but I'm loving the ever changing variations of my glazes on these "one-of-a-kind" claybodies.

A few more pieces....

Thanks,
Michael

I'm glazing work now for the next firing and can easily include several yunomi with the tenmoku and nuka glaze combination. Do you have a size and shape preference? I currently have +/- 100 bisqued yunomi ready for glazing.

Thanks for your interest,

3, 4, 5, 6 ounces as a range. Generally speaking, I am not a huge fan of the tall cylindrical yunomi, so lower and wider I guess. Tapers are nice as well.

Guinomi too ...

personally i have plenty of smaller cups that i use..so I was actually looking for more an 8, 9,10 oz range cup for my daily drinking
shape not so important..im not adverse to taller tapers are good for me too! im just looking for a good 'feeling" yunomi..Yeah..I know..kinda ambiguous huh

Michael, it would be helpful if you put your Etsy store address link in your profile somewhere.

Yes, I did see that thanks. It would be easier to click from the current page to get there, and I feel perhaps newer members may also benefit from having it at hand. Perhaps not knowing where to look.
