Anagama Firing in Shigaraki

Thursday, March 10th, 2011

Here are some of my new pots, just fired in Shigaraki.  For this firing I made beer, tea, and sake cups.  They are all handbuilt (which was completely new for me, as I have always used the electric wheel).  All of the pots are the same clay body – a blend of Shigaraki clays, and there is no glaze, only the natural ash effects from the fire.

These sake cups were scattered all around the kiln.  Different places in the kiln result in very different surfaces on the pots.  They are all the same clay body with no glaze.  Fire, ash, wind, and time left their marks.
