about this piece:

"Teabowl/Chawan," #00-117

7/5 cm x 11 cm x 10 cm


This bowl was fired, not on its foot, but on a tripod which held the bowl in a "leaning-forward" posture during the firing. The outside reveals an entire landscape of natural ash accumulation. The inside has a huge puddle/pool of translucent green glaze in the "corner" of the bottom interior - a wonderful contrast to the color of the tea. Fired for 15 days with Cottonwood fuel.
