Bruce is working on one of his Yunomi's for the upcoming Yunomi invitational at AKAR
We thought we would have time to make enough pots for our reduction fired gas kiln, but we looked at the calendar and realized "no way". Quickly, we are changing gears to throw teabowls and focus on getting these done for the upcoming Yunomi invitational at AKAR. We wrapped our pieces really well that we we were working on for the gas kiln and pulled out some different clays. Bruce is focusing on some agate Yunomis, and I am focusing on porcelain yunomis and plan to decorate them with red clay slip. These will be fired with some combination of our flowing crystalline glazes. There is nothing like pushing a deadline to the end. Bruce and I find ourselves in this position more often that not.
** Yunomi - a form of tea bowl, being taller than wide with a trimmed or turned foot, without a handle; made for daily (or informal) tea drinking.
