Illustrated is a saffron (yellow iron) glazed teabowl with poured black and grey areas of slip over a white slipped body. The pouring is in fact, managed by using a squeeze bulb filled with the slip, to control the flow and to try to create a spontaneous, but not totally slipped area. The slips show well under my saffron  glaze and accentuate the vertical nature of the form while the irregular decoration helps animate the bowl and like any rorschach test, the viewer can see what ever reality they want in the surface.

"Reality has no inside, outside, or middle part."
