Handmade Yunomis Are Perfect for Tea (ajhpottery)

by ajhpottery » May 31st, '09, 22:44

Hi! I'm Amy. As a potter, I've quickly discovered that the yunomi form is my favorite.

I like how yunomi teacups fit in your hand so easily. I like how the spotted shino glaze interacts with the alfred's blue glaze. The iron spots on the shino are an added touch. I prefer pottery that is simple. These yunomis are good for all kinds of tea.

Check out my blog for recent pictures of the latest yunomis that came out of the kiln this past Friday. Notice that each group of yunomis has different coloring, depending on the amount of reduction that takes place in the pots in the kiln during the firing. The reduction phase of firing generates color in the shino pots as the flame pulls the oxygen molecules out of the clay and the glazes because there isn't enough oxygen in the environment. Basically, the reductin atmosphere occurs when the amount of oxygen is reduced in a kiln. Reduction is a good thing; it makes each pot unlike any other.

Check out my blog for pictures of teacups! http://ajhpottery.blogspot.com/
Teacups are available for sale through etsy which can be accessed through my blog, which also shows teacups in the making!

p.s.. how do you add a picture onto a post? I'm confused.

Hi Amy and welcome to TeawareArtisans of TeaChat. I hope to see many of your works here.

In order to post a pic, it is best to use photobucket or similar hosting, however I got this off your Etsy as an example. Keep in mind that your photo is not archived here, so you must not change wherever you draw your photos from. I have done this twice so you can see my example. First I did it with 3 *** which have to be removed for the code to work, then I did it without the 3 *** so it works properly. I hope this helps.

Generally, your url needs to end with the 3 letters, jpg. The img code is easily added from up the function bar when you are writing a post. If you use photobucket, you can click onto the img option and the img coding is already added, just copy and paste.

The problem is the Etsy blog widget. But if you click on the pictures in the widget you can get there. Or if you click on the shop name at the bottom of the widget, you'll also get there. If you click on Etsy, you will just get the parent site.

I wish Etsy would recode that.
