Thanks! I will be loading the kiln this weekend for another firing, starting Feb 15. I have several chawan and yunomi in this one, so I will have pics in a few weeks

There are 2 different ones, each is about 3" x 3" I think. I have them on etsy as well. I fired them in February, but have a lot of pots that I only recently photographed.
The middle one has iron brushwork on the other side, and took some serious wood fire. That celadon doesn't move like that without serious heat (cone 14+, I suspect), and it gets opalescent blue in the ash drips around the foot. I mixed them together in these shots- notice the middle one has a square foot.

I managed to find them on your Etsy. I want to pull the trigger so bad, but I am likely moving soon, and should probably try and hoarde cash in the mean time because I am not quite sure what the next 4 months will bring.

Thanks! I've been focusing on the nuka pieces a bit, but it only works in the hottest part of the kiln, so I can only put in so many of them. (The middle of the kiln is already cone 12 flat, so the front must be well over cone 14)

Thanks, Chip! I have been a bit focused on sculpture and face jugs of late. After a couple of conversations with myself here, I thought I would wait until I had something new to share :lol:

Teaware specifically made for shows in Salem, MA leading up to Halloween. (they go jussst a bit nuts for Halloween there)
