Hi! I'm Amy. As a potter, I've quickly discovered that the yunomi form is my favorite.
I like how yunomi teacups fit in your hand so easily. I like how the spotted shino glaze interacts with the alfred's blue glaze. The iron spots on the shino are an added touch. I prefer pottery that is simple. These yunomis are good for all kinds of tea.
Check out my blog for recent pictures of the latest yunomis that came out of the kiln this past Friday. Notice that each group of yunomis has different coloring, depending on the amount of reduction that takes place in the pots in the kiln during the firing. The reduction phase of firing generates color in the shino pots as the flame pulls the oxygen molecules out of the clay and the glazes because there isn't enough oxygen in the environment. Basically, the reductin atmosphere occurs when the amount of oxygen is reduced in a kiln. Reduction is a good thing; it makes each pot unlike any other.

Teacups are available for sale through etsy which can be accessed through my blog, which also shows teacups in the making!
p.s.. how do you add a picture onto a post? I'm confused.
