Bill,
Thanks for the kind words, I really appreciate it.

I though I would post an image of a resent Twice Fired Ash Tenmoku Chawan. This piece was reduction fired to cone 10 (2345 F) and then fired again in my gas kiln under neutral to oxidation conditions to
cone 08 (1760 F). In this case the tenmoku developed a rich matte finish with depth.

I will list this piece on etsy tomorrow with addional images @ http://shyrabbit.etsy.com

Thanks for looking,
Michael

Ooh ah ooh Michael that is luscious. Is the red and green coming from copper?

Thanks...luscious is a good adjective both for the visual and hand feel.

Yes, I take a typical Nuka glaze (mine has some ash in it) and add 2-4% copper carb. Needs good reduction or this glaze is flat & pale.
