Group 1, "Scalloped Yunomi-s"

Image

View all 6 Yunomi here:

Bill Perrine wrote:I pressed various scallop shells into the soft clay surface and created a softly squared form that is comfortable to hold with your hands.

A gently flared lip makes for proper pouring while the minimal foot creates a "just floating" appearance, giving a visual lightness to the yunomi.

I used a carbon trap shino that I dried with a fan from one angle and this created uneven salt deposits on the surface so I would get the uneven firing response/variations in the glaze surface. I reduced the kiln enough to get the burnt orange spotting/trapping that I like but I did not want the dark gray-black carbon trapping that this shino is capable of in this palette. This was created by placing them farther back in the kiln, away from the oxygen in the primary air ports. I controlled the reduction by controlling the amount of wood put in each stoke.

They all received a fantastic luster (micro-crystalline development on the surface) from the slow cooling I employed. Varying amounts of natural fly ash along with the iron specking in the clay body makes for a beautiful look!

They all hold 11 to 13 oz measured at approximately 1/4" below the rim

Cost each: $20.00 USD

Group 2, "Mountain Ippuku-wan-s" with Trivet

Mountain Ippuku-wan are sold out!!!

View all the Ippukuwan-s here:
http://s285.photobucket.com/albums/ll60/Teamaan/TC%20TA%20SO%20Bill%20Perrine/TC%20TASO%20BillPerrine%20Mtn%20Ippukuwan/

Bill Perrine wrote:I textured the soft clay surface to simulate a mountain range that encircles the wan. A gently undulating foot creates a subtle repetition of the undulating mountain tops. Careful observation will reveal the overlapping of the mountains, helping to create distances/depth in the mountains.

I enjoy the wabi-sabi in the scallop yunomis and also wanted to express it in these as well. Although not as pronounced, there is a slight, intentional, unevenness in the lip, body and trivet.

I used rough sawn wood to create a rustic surface on the trivets. I also left a slightly rough torn edge on the trivets to enhance the look of the rustic ness of the clay and overall uniqueness. A different direction from my usual smooth, more polished look, just for this TC SO.

I also have been experimenting with clay bodies to get a naked surface that is responsive to the firing and has textural character. The flashing and ash deposits are nicely varied.

I used a oni shino on the inside, partially on the mountains (having found what colors come from what applications) and on the top surface of the trivet outside of the recess. The base of the mountains, center depression, sides, bottom and feet of the trivets are naked. I have been experimenting with this shino for several firings now.

Overall, a unique combination of wan and a base.

They all hold real close to 10oz measured at approximately 1/4" below the rim.

3 views of each one starting with the side that faced the flame, the back, and the bottom.
All the trivets are 3/4" h and 4 1/2' x 4 1/2"
All measurements below are without the trivets.


Cost including the cool trivet: $32

mc for the mountain chawan (though more precisely Ippuku-wan in size!) - then the number with its views a + b


SOLD 1) mc1,mc1a,mc1b - 2 1/2"h x 4"w

SOLD 2) mc2,mc2a,mc2b 2 1/2"h x 4 1/4"w

SOLD 3) mc3,mc3a,mc3b 2 3/8"h x 4 3/8"w

SOLD 4) mc4,mc4a,mc4b 2 1/2"h x 4"w

SOLD 5) mc5,mc5a,mc5b 2 5/8"h x 4 1/4"w

Sorry, N/A 6) mc6 ... Fell off porch 12' up and now has a crack :(

Group 4, PRIZE "Scalloped Sake Pitcher/Bottle" with Trivet

There is one and only one prize that will be awarded after the close of this TA SO. Bill will randomly draw a lucky member's name who has purchased one of the TA SO #4 pieces.

View other photos here:

Bill Perrine wrote:This is a shino bottle that was laid on a scallop shell which was in turn placed on wads. It went to cone 13, approx. 2400*f. It has the carbon trap shino on it like the scallop shell yunomis.

The photo does not do it justice, but think "fossilized shell" when viewing the scallop imprint.

It comes with a rustic natural surface cork and a trivet. Every purchase gets your name put in for a drawing for this scallop bottle and trivet.


The bottle is 6 1/4" h x 3 1/2"w
The trivet is 3/4"h x 4 1/2" x 4 1/2"

I recommend you email your selections at 6 pm Eastern USA time in order to avoid disappointment. I will update availability in this topic!

I will endeavor to reply to your email asap, please be patient as this can get a bit crazy. I will reply tonight.

The scallop yunomis are $20.00
the mountain chawans and mountain yunomis with the matching trivets are all $32.00 plus shipping.

Shipping:

Bill Perrine wrote:I looked up postage rates for some different states. I choose some certain distances from me and the prices kind of fall about where the time zones are and it will make an easy way to differentiate who pays what. I found also that the rates are for 1-8oz, 9-16oz, 17-32oz... I have 3 scallop yunomis that are 16oz (with packaging) and 3 that will be a total of 17oz... which puts them in the next 17-32oz package weight rates. Mountain yunomis and mountain wans are 24oz and 30oz... so, I am going to put all of them in the 17-32oz rates to make it simple.

EST zone pays $6.00
CST zone pays $7.75,
MST zone pays $9.00
PST zone pays $9.75 shipping and handling.
Everyone else will get a quote for shipping from me.
Thanks,
Bill


I believe if you order more than one piece, and the multiple pieces are available, the flat rate shipping is around $11 for USA.

The horror! the horror! The tea cabinet is filling, I cannot have them all! The scallops are so cool, but they're so big.....would I use them enough? Would my current chawan be jealous of a lovely mountain-wan? cannot....decide......(sounds of sparking and smoke coming out of my ears)

... I am leaning towards ... oh wait, I should not say ... should I?

These are all quite different from any other acquisition ... I really like the "wood plank" trivets ... really like the scallops (my fave shell fish to eat), and really like the mountains.

Thank you Teaisme, I tried to make something different from my usual "look". I experimented with a new oni shino and clay body for it in my last three wood-firings finally getting a handle on it so I could use it properly. Didn't want to do something too crazy and have it fail in a sometimes unpredictable wood-firing.
Cheers,
Bill

Thanks... love the prize, its lovely.

I already own several of Bill's pieces incuding a kyusu, numerous yunomi, and some standard handled coffee cups. I also own a mountain wan/yunomi, in his lovely signature turquoise combo.

But these SO pieces... I am loving them! The scalloped are quite different than anything I have from Bill yet, and the mountain pieces are so vibrant, especially the ones in the more rust tones... reminds me of a desert sunset. Yes, I must have one. I'll be getting a yunomi because I love the larger vessels anyway... I like the wans too, but this mountain imagery needs a nice big canvas to show off. Thanks for the great variety of offerings, can't wait to see which ones I get.
