I received this yunomi in the mail from Chris. As with all complex glazes, it can be very difficult to capture the play of light and color. This yunomi has an amazingly deep glaze, with beautiful rust and iron markings like (I think) a good orange shino should have. The lip has a stunning metallic gold and rainbow sheen that also shows up faintly on the chamfering.
Very complex, very beautiful.
Chris, you need to learn to handle that camera! Your work is lovely, and it's very hard to see that in your photos. Heck MY photos don't do justice to your glaze. You're a real artist.
These three photos were all processed differently to highlight the glaze in different ways.
I'm not satisfied with the last one, though I shot and reshot. I'm pleased with how it highlights the color and depth of the shino, but I was especially trying to show here the quality of the gold and rainbow metallic shine on the lip. I suspect that natural light will not allow it to be captured properly (at least at my skill level,) and I would need studio lighting. It really is quite stunning.
When I unwrapped this yunomi, I actually said out loud "Oh!" because the image I had seen beforehand showed very little of the lovely detail of the actual piece. (No offense, Chris!
Thank you again!
