After seeing this chawan above

Image

I started watching shyrabbit's etsy obsessively and was rewarded with this carbon trap shino and rutile cup

Image

slips and drips

Image

swirls and curls and crackles

Image

a curtain bit flips over the lip

Image

and even the 'plain' bits between the rainbow curtains are distinctive

There were 3 or 4 pieces in that last firing with a similar glazing, and the ones like this and that chawan went quickly. I'm guessing more like them will show up if you keep checking his etsy.

I got another cup at the same time, because two can ship almost as cheaply as one. It's a subtle dark shino

Image

more variegated than rainbowed, here showing quite a few colors over the lip to the lighter interior

Image

and there's a little swirl in a few places to add pattern to the color

Image

and best of all, a wonderful size for the majority of my teapots, about 4 oz.

Hi,
Thought I would post an image of 100 Tea Cups that I just finished that were commissioned by a Zen Study Center in New York to be given as gifts at an upcoming ceremony. I had two weeks to get them done and out the door. Finished yesterday morning...The packing is the worst part, by far.

Thank you...more later.
Michael

The details get lost in the massive quantity. But we won't be seeing these again ...

Given how carefully you pack, that must have been quite an undertaking!

Will you be adding to your etsy anytime soon?

Hi Chip,
Yeah, the packing was a real big pain in the butt...It was a good feeling when they left the studio on time...I will be taking pix tomorrow with a few new pieces being posted to my shop soon after, thanks for asking.

Michael

Some really lovely cups in that firing, including this blue stunner. Wow.

I thought I would post a few pieces of bisque ware just for fun, they are white stoneware, will be about 2 ounces and likely to be glazed light and simple, but who knows. I have several dozen coming soon...thanks to all that pushed the idea of smaller cups...I appreciate it.
Michael
ps, there's a bit of a perspective problem with these images, the cups don't lean as they appear to here.

Hi,
Here's Today's Creamy Crawling Shino Glazed Chawan...It measure 3" h. x 5-3/8" w. and was fired to 2345F in reduction in my small gas fired updraft kiln. This Chawan has the feel of reptilian skin. Thanks for looking. PS, nice long afternoon downpour..Great.
