The fine, little iron bearing clay has been mixed with sand (suna gohon) and thrown into an ido shape widening towards the rim.

The light body is covered with a clear, little greyish ash glaze, reacting with the iron oxide in the body to develop the pink spots typical for that kind of Gohon bowls.

The high foot has been trimmed when the clay was leather hard producing a rough surfac...

Rough unrefined Shigaraki clay, with little iron oxide, thrown into the shape of a small tsubo called 'uzukumaru'. The unglazed body was scorched by the fire to a beautiful red discolouration. The bottom plate shows two stripes called 'geta', which held the pot in place on the hand wheel. Some flying ash has created a natural glaze on the shoulder and the mouth. Inside some lacquer or other chemical has been applied to prevent the vase from leaking - a common practice with unglazed Shigaraki ...

Setoguro yaki is high-fired ware that originated in the late 16th century. Black glaze is achieved by removing the iron-glazed pots from the kiln when they are red-hot (a technique ca...
