Perhaps more successful as an over glaze on top of another color. But that is what makes these so unique. I can't wait to see it in person. Congrats on being the first!!

Yeah, in person it is really so cool. I certainly never saw anything with so many of the features exhibited in this piece. I think mission accomplished.
The first goal was to convey the juxtaposition of really extreme oni Hagi with the translucent glaze. It is amazing how problematic this actually was.
After a 4+ hour soak, this certainly absorbs a lot of water, and the clay darkens. This will be a fun Hagi to watch.
