I was rummaging through a box, looking for old test pods and came across I teabowl I saved from a few years back. The teabowl is porcelain with a Shino glaze and ash accents. I made this bowl as a demo while teaching at Wesleyan Potters. The kilns were mostly fired by Ryan Bothamley, the studio tech prior to going off to RIT for grad school, so I have him to thank. Based on the amount of unexpected carbon trapping, it must have been in the right place at the right time.
