Thank You!

I want to thank those individuals who purchased my yunomi this past Friday (May 15th) in conjunction with AKAR Gallery's "2015 Yunomi Invitational" opening. All of my pieces
were selected within the first hour. This is a phenomenal exhibition and I am always delighted to be part of it. Again, "Thank you"!

Firebox Guinomi

Its an aesthetic not appreciated by everyone, but pieces fired in a wood kiln's firebox or side stoke area can result in effects unobtainable any other way. Coming out of the kiln they are very crusty, but by using the proper abrasives, they are rendered smooth. This is a sake cup from the November '14 anagama firing...
