One of the yunomnis to match the teapot I posted a number of days ago. Fired for six days in a heavily reduced atmosphere that transitions to an oxidised one in the latter part of the cooling. Thrown with a clay partly mixed with a Shigaraki body this vessel is coated with an iron slip beneath thicker shino that was painted on with a straw hakeme brush. To make the interior more useable a white shino that melts with more of a sheen was used, which the iron still bleeds through causing it to turn a crimson red hue.
I hope you folks don’t mind what might be a few weeks barrage of these kinds of photographs. I’d also like to quickly say thanks for all the hundreds upon hundreds of comments this past week, it’s a little overwhelming but I’m so pleased you’ve all been revelling in my Japan diary updates, I’ll try and respond to as many as I can. It’s been unbelievably refreshing writing about my time here and the pots made and techniques learnt, I’m sure I’ll be at a loss once I return home, that or I might take a short break from the platform to recuperate.
Todays task is to photograph most of the pots destined for my exhibition, I’ll take them in and amongst the studios and kilns, location shots of where they were made. The gallery that’s hosting me is stunning, a rock garden lined with foliage leads to the exhibition space and the shop, all built from giant wooden beams intricately carved and put together. Behind the gallery is an old pottery, from what I can gather it isn’t used much as the trolley carts packed with bisque ware have remained there since Ken first took me here the day I arrived. Next to them a large a multi chambered kiln climbs back into the shadowy kiln shed. Much of Mashiko is like this, walking around you can glimpse into many of the studios with objects such as old used saggars and kiln shelves stacked high. I could wonder through the backstreets endlessly had I the time.

Had the opportunity to try @moto_brew_coffee having met Andrew over the weekend: their medium-roast Mexican bean was delicate, smooth- perfect for this morning’s chill. ☕️
Additionally, all Nominee orders placed this weekend and today will be shipped this week, with a big roast day tomorrow; hope everyone is enjoying their Presidents Day weekend. ✨

Ну вот и все. Волнения позади. Шкатулка для часов с двумя выдвижными ящиками для запонок готова. Финальный штрих и... Эбен, как всегда, деликатно оттеняет американский орех, а мерцание латуни, отполированной вручную, контрастирует с богатой фактурой дерева и бархатной поверхностью ложемента. Инкрустация на крышке выполнена в технике интарсия. Мы старались, чтобы этот подарок стал для адресата особенным. Надеемся, нам это удалось. Скоро узнаем точно 🙄.//
That's it. All the worries are behind. Wood box for watches with two drawers for cufflinks is ready. The final touch and ... Ebony wood, as always, delicately shades the American Walnut, and the flickering of brass, polished by hand, contrasts with the rich texture of the wood and the velvet surface of the base. Inlay on the lid is made in the technique of intarsia. We tried to make this gift special for the addressee. Hope we did it well. We'll find out it for sure soon 🙄.

Searching for a way to transform a space into a cozy, cabin-like space? Consider creating a truss system with Fypon polyurethane beams and beam tops. They’re easy to install, ready to paint or stain and look just like wooden beams. See our full collection by clicking the link in bio.

Керамический триллер на ночь глядя. На фотографии матовые глазури разных производителей, рассчитанные на температуру 1050С. И сверху они же, но обожженные на 1200С - прекрасный ровный глянец. Такая красота получилась, потому что существуют настоящие матовые глазури и фейковые/«ложные» матовые. Настоящие матовые глазури такие же стойкие и прочные как и глянцевые, их можно использовать для изделий, контактирующих с пищей. Их матовость обусловлена тем, что во время остывания в них формируются кристаллы, которые и дают такую текстуру. И на какой бы температуре ни проходил обжиг, матовые глазури всегда будут матовыми. А вот «ложные» матовые станут глянцевыми, потому что на самом деле это глянцевые глазури, которые при недожоге выглядят матовыми. Вот эти как раз не подходят для посуды, они не прочные и пачкаются. Зачем же их создают? Чтобы использовать для декоративных изделий. Для таких целей прочность не важна.
