donating 100% sales of my etsy site to 100% to http://potters.blogspot.com/p/relief.html

http://photocorylum.wordpress.com/ updates via my blog on volunteering and visuals of destruction up in the tohoku area of japan.

the earthquake and tsunami was surreal
our family survived. our hearts and thoughts go out to the many families who lost loved ones and need to rebuild. japan has an amazing spirit of 'ganbaro'. much like a phoenix arising from the ashes.

humble thanks !
cory

Cory, good to see you posting already on this part of the site. One of the things I really like about your work is the sense of style you have. There is a nice consistency throughout the shapes you create. I can feel you through the work.

A good idea is to put dimensions on these pieces so we can further visualize them on our tea tables!! Great to have you on here.

love your work!! wish i had a gas or wood fire but i do elec. so glaze is the key.

hey how has Hawaii been the last 14 years. its been that long since i left. i lived there in makiki and Kaneohe for 6 years. great place but hi rent you know. don't miss driving for 3 hrs and winding up in the same place i started too.

when i left it was hard times for the locals taking over beaches and trucking in water. i heard they won the battle and got land. coooool.

i have no suggestions for you other than keep producing. keep putting stuff on the shelf.

But if you have any for me please post on my thread
:lol: :lol:

aloha ! todays chawan. shino w/keshiki

Postby bonjiri » May 10th, '09, 13:55

whoa. today is sunday !

coloradopu. mahalo ! thanks ! i don't have a woodfire either. just some really cool friends who kindly offer to fire stuff for me. the kilns i have access to are cone 10 gas and soda kiln. i love soda ! wild stuff !

yay ! going down to unload a soda kiln to see what kinds of 'gifts' happened in the firing. wow ! serendipity rules here ! either you're happy or you're happy ! hehe !

please enjoy this sunday's chawan. happy mom's day ! actually, every day is mom's day !

dimensions of shino chawan. height 4.5-inches x 3.5-inches

what makes this cool chawan even more cool. keshiki. u can see on the shomen, serendipity kicked in and gave us a half white/half red shomen. oxidation versus reduction. in the kiln, reduction is the lack of oxidation/more carbon monoxide/excess fuel, the metals in the clay body/glaze migrates to the surface of the body looking for oxygen and what we see is some of the metals on the surface. in this case, orange is iron. according to John Britt's book, "reduction atmosphere. atmosphere in a kiln where there is a deficiency in the oxygen necessary for complete combustion of the fuel."

one wild thing. not in this case but in 'e-shino' (picture shino). red iron oxide ( Fe2O3 ) changes to black iron oxide (FeO) by oxygen being ripped off during a reduction atmosphere. red iron oxide is stable, meanwhile the black iron oxide has more than 10 times the fluxing properties than red oxide. one makes glaze stiff, the other makes glazes run (flux). wild stuff happens in a 'reduction atmosphere' within the kiln.

aloha !

i didn't use a light tent. i 'm simple when it comes to lighting. less is more (mies van derohe). one key point, i tilted the flash towards the lens, causing a little darkening in the background (falloff) and a reflector in the front to 'kick back' light into the chawan. i used a single small hexagon shaped soft box with a small vivitar 283 flash within it. iso 100 f/8 at 1/125th second. canon 10d camera w/ nikkor 55/3.5 micro lens. lens has a nikon AI to Canon EF mount adapter .

This natsu chawan is absolutely stunning. Seems that so many of this shape are so delicate - this one is substantial. Nice difference. Of course, I saw the side view on your flickr, good balance, and I hope also to see the foot. :)

Love the shino above. The shino "one that got away," that I JUST missed purchasing from Reid O. last year was very orange, and very "orange peel" - highly textured exterior. So interesting. I don't usually regret not picking up teaware once the initial moment has passed, but that piece... ah well. Perhaps he'll be back at the Japanese Garden Showcase this year, and I'll have another chance.

I'm thinking soda and shino will be the next big craze here on teachat. :lol:

a shame. What is the rate of loss from firing? Is this typical? I know certain types of ceramics are more vulnerable when firing, but never actually inquired as to how much is expected to be lost.

Or do you mean deliberately sanded? I know of a potter who, when he unloads a kiln, if he is not happy with the pieces, he takes a mallet to the rejects so they don't go out into the world bearing his name.

Cory, you are quite welcome! Your awesome talent is a very welcomed addition to this forum! You are quite diversified w/your creations, I am looking forward with anticipation to see your next one!

I noticed in one of your posts that you fired one piece on a bed of shells. I love shells and found that quite interesting. 8) Do you do pieces with shells?
