Ok, so still no pics of finished pieces. Hopefully these will suffice till then
Here are some yunomi in the bisque stage. In a nutshell, clay (typically) goes through two firings. The first being called the bisque which makes raw or green clay (do I sense a theme developing) much stronger yet still very porous. The bisqueware is then glazed (usually) and then fired one more time. This final firing matures the clay body and transforms the raw glaze into a vitreous surface.
These pieces are waiting to be glazed both inside and out for a cone 10 gas reduction firing:
The outside of the following pieces are covered in either Smooth Orange or Mustard Yellow flashing slip. They will get an interior liner glaze and be fired to cone 10 in a soda kiln. When the soda mixture is introduced into the kiln at about 2200 degrees, it volatilizes, moves throughout the chamber along the flame path, and reacts with the pieces therein. Because these yunomi have a high alumina flashing slip on them, the exteriors will not become glazed by the soda. They will, in turn, flash in such a manner that emphasizes the path the flame took around the ware during firing.
A quick note about the feet on these pieces: I've started to extend them a bit -- this raises them off whatever surface they may be sitting on both physically and visually. This change seemed to be a natural evolutionary step for these pieces...
