This a more modestly sized mug, wheel-thrown and altered in black stoneware. This dark clay offers a rich depth to it’s accompanying slips and glazes. The clay itself often form a glassy finish when salt-glazed or sometimes it turns a wonderful matt black where it is sheltered from the flame path. The mug is rouletted with a textured pattern. This enjoyable process has the effect of altering the base of the form to a soft flared frill, providing a satisfying purchase and comfort in the user’s hand. The outside has a porcelain slip and a willow-ash glaze; a combination which beautifully accentuates the fine rouletted texture. The inside has a deep rusty orange shino glaze. It is wood-fired to 1300*C. The pot is fired on three sea-shells, hence the three decorative halos to it’s base. This serves to elevate and separate the pots from the shelf to prevent it binding.
