We have finished decorating our Yunomis. These cups are Bruce's. He turned three different clays together which we call agate. We found that using smooth small particle clays that mature at a similar temperature, and of course similar water content works well for us. Sometimes Bruce will layer clay up and let it age in a bag together so that the clay is consistent when he turns it. He applied a few skull sprigs and insects on some of them. The others will have slip-trailed fossil fish. We plan on using our flowing crystalline glaze for these.
These cups are mine. I threw them out of porcelain and then applied a red clay slip. I carved and did a wash away technique to reveal various designs. I also plan to use our flowing crystalline glazes on these. This will be the first time doing something like this under our glazes. I made plenty so I will have many to pick from. I am excited as to where this experiment will lead us.
