Treasure 3 from John Baymore. A beautiful teacup/wan. More photos will be in John's TeawareArtisan topic momentarily.

It is thrown, and wood fired. Smooth white stoneware body. 8.5 cm dia and 7 cm h. Weight 160 grams. This piece I do not have the kiln firing record for, but I think it was the summer 2010 firing. Glaze both interior and out is American Shino but it is fired mainly in oxidation, so I am thinking from chamber 4 which is where I do that mostly (for oribe glazes mainly). It has substantial flyash over the shino glaze and some nice flashing on the exposed clay foot.


Winner TBD and announced later!!! :twisted:

Wow, those are beautiful pieces! It was almost too much to view them for the first time all at once. Fortunately I was sitting down.

I think Chip has a well-crafted roll-out plan here for maximum tension... :D

Wow, very very nice treasures!

And the hunt was interesting too, especially at the very end. I got an unexpected visit and I barely managed to send the final answers in time!

Unfortunately, I had no idea about the treasure #1. Now I see the "hot legs" in Bill's avatar and the location is Homer, but what about Turquoise?

EDIT: Ah, I got it finally, the lovely turquoise cup from his thread? :oops:

... and last but not least, an eager vendor who wanted to join in the fun of a TreasureHunt. Treasure 8 from IPT of Chinese-Tea-Culture. This little treasure Celadon Guinomi or GongFu cup "was made by Wu Yuanzhong and holds 30cc" and has oodles of charm and character.

Winner TBD and announced later!!! :mrgreen:

Here is a link to another photo (to be fair I am only posting one photo per treasure in this topic). Had Mr. IPT created his TeaMerchandiser topic as he said he would, I would post them there. :lol: :mrgreen: hint hint ... and I will once he does create this topic.
