Wood-fired ash glaze

by mcgreave » Apr 20th 21 9:01 pm

The natural glaze that is formed by wood-firing yixing is very interesting and beautiful:

Does anyone know if this "ash glaze" acts like a normal glaze? Does it affect or prevent the patina from forming on the outside? Does it affect the inside of the pot at all and how the pot flavors?

My experience with wood-fired teapots is that the teapot is somewhat more dense, and the appearance is somewhat more oily looking. I don't have any experience on how such clay affects flavour though.
