one of my old yunomi. i was experimenting with a carbon trap shino glaze. soda ash intensive, the glaze dries and forms wild soda ash crystals.

I "LOVE" the carved teapots... the speckled yunomi needs to live at my home... the emerald green eye is gorgeous... your work is spectacular!

But that chicken foot sake cup scares me alittle. Looks like something I saw in a salad in the local Asian Market. :shock:

Seriously really do admire your work... thanks so much for sharing. The speckled yunomi is calling my name.
