I feel your pain--I drink matcha, but not nearly as much as I do leaf tea ... and yet I can't seem to resist a gorgeous chawan anyway. *looks furtive* Sometimes I even drink non-matcha tea out of my chawan anyway, just so I can have an excuse to take them down off the shelf and hold them ... :wink:

I like the red glaze on that one, would it be possible to make a cup which is almost completely red?

Hello Tobias,
Sorry you missed on those two pieces...The Red on the piece, you referenced, was a bit of a surprise. The Red is really a nice color and the satiny finish is really pleasing. So, yes I will be working with these two glazes to recreate the color, I'm with you, I think it would be killer on an all Red piece. I will let you know when I have some.

Thanks Tobias for your support of my work, I appreciate it,
Michael

Well, I was hoping they would still be available until my next payday, I have exceeded my tea budget quite a bit this month.

Thanks, I'm looking forward to it.

Here's three views of the same Yunomi glazed with shino, wood ash and rutile. It measures 3-1/8" h. x 3" dia., it was fired to ∆10 (2345F) in reduction in my latest firing.

Thanks for looking and thank you Yinwenqi... for being interested in my work,
Michael

Thanks for the heads-up, I miss the direct attachment feature. I added the third image.

Thanks again,
Michael

debunix,
Ok, how'd you do that? I can get a link and a thumbnail but I haven't figured out how to post the full image. I'm using imageshack.us. I guess I need to look around a bit more.

Thanks in advance,
Michael

Hit reply, quoting my text, and you'll see it. I just clicked on the "img" (image) button, and pasted the URL for each image between the (img) markers.

It definitely is a cup that deserves a wide audience.

It almost looks as if the fire decided to create an image of itself on the side of that cup--the signature of the kiln, as it were!

Very, very beautiful!
