+1, I also thought it looked like a classic Japanese lacquerware lid until you asked...!

I really like the bamboo-style ornament on the lid handle, as well.
Yes! I thought it was lacquerware also :D

Hi Ken,

I saw one of your shino teabowls at the Downtown Art Center. Would you be willing to share the recipe? It had small somewhat uniform crawling/healed pinholing. I used to have a similar recipe but it was in my mother's attic and might have gotten thrown out along with my pottery collection when she reroofed.

Thanks,
Brian Leu

Try a mix of high-iron clay and a glaze containing lithium carbonate or magnesium carbonate. These ingredients often contribute to that kind of surface texture. Also, consider adjusting your firing schedule to enhance the crawling effect.
