The winner of Treasure 2 is ... Gargoylekitty


Chip wrote:Treasure 2 by Shawn of GreenwoodStudio. A beautiful wood fired shino teacup/wan to a lucky TreasureHunter!

Teacup, wood-fired iron rich stoneware w/ shino and iron brushwork

This one has been glazed with a nice smooth shino glaze that takes on golden hues. It has some very minimal iron brushwork decoration. It measures 3-3.5"w (because of its asymmetry) x 2"t and holds approx. 7 oz at full capacity (to the rim)


Winner TBD and announced later!!! :twisted:

The winner of Treasure 3 is ... Iannon


Chip wrote: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.

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.

Wow, I can't believe I won - & it was my favorite! I haven't won anything since the 1990's when I won some Soundgarden stuff off of the video jukebox channel :)

I'll be sure to post a picture of it.

Thank you to Bill Perrine for the beautiful cup & to Chip organizing this!
