More Oribe

 I have been tweaking my process for getting the results I am after with Oribe glaze. This piece is the epitome of my quest. It has the correct hue of green, breaks nicely over the surface, and achieves that wonderful blue.

 I have been in love with the copper green Oribe glaze since discovering the work of Shigemasa Higasheda. His Oribe pieces are spectacular and I have been on a quest to get a hue that I am pleased with, plus achieving the blue and whitish pooling. This sake cup came out of a test firing today and I am very happy with it.
