Since it is Friday, I thought I would  post a simple pot. Illustrated is a loosely, for me, thrown porcelain teabowl with large impressed medallions glazed with a good old Foote Minerals spodumene Shino glaze and accented with  bidoro-yu in the impressed areas. Once again the teabowl was in the right place and a whole band circling the top portion of the bowl has carbon trapped accentuating the form and throwing rhythm. I don’t think I could have planned the piece any better than what the kiln did on its own.  Isn’t it amazing what simple carbon, silica and 2380 degree can do?
