Illustrated is a large flared mouth, trumpet style vase with incised decoration of a repeated design around the shoulder of the pot. The vase was glazed first in one Oribe glaze and then dipped again in a thinner version of the same glaze with 1% iron added to the mix leading to wispy tendrils of running glaze effects which are especially noticeable at the bottoms of the grouped incised marks. I decided to add the larger, detailed view so that one could get a better perspective of what the surface actually looks like and how the glaze responds to the incised decoration. An overall shot, from a distance just doesn't give the fuller picture of what the surface has to say.
