FINGER PRINTED DETAIL

It was pointed out to me that the Shino slip and ash serving bowl photo didn't blow up very well and they were curious what the piece looked like in greater detail. I took a shot of the pot that shows the interesting interplay between the two glazes and the details of the lug where the underlying Shino slip cracks to define the attachment and creates a surface filled with a vivid landscape of affects. Also highlighted is the iron blushed halo around the area where my fingerprints acted as a resist while glazing the pot. Though a simple glazing job overall, there is a wide array of details and accents that help animate the piece and make a functional pot that much more interesting to use.
