When I am using my iron glaze over temmoku there are a number of variables that dictate how the surface will come out. The illustrated detail shot shows a large number of iron crystal spots that appeared all of the surface of a teabowl. The general characteristic of the streaky, running glaze is there but the surface is punctuated with all these little spots of iron making for a neat effect. This happens every now and again but is not something I can count on but if it were 100% predictable, what fun would that be?
