This bottle was fired next to the main grate in the anagama. I have spoken before that this is a "risk all" area but one for wonderful colours. In Japan it would be filled with lacquer so that it could be used - it is certainly too nice to throw away. Our teacher, Sanyo Fujii, said to us that pots were like your children and, just because they may have something wrong, you do not abandon them.
