Festival Pots

During the Wood Fire Festival in 2002 some finished work was shown like this platter by Iwami Shinsuke-san. We all made demonstration work as well and this large vase, shown here on its side, was made by another Japanese potter whose name I cannot remember. The wire cutting was so even and I can imagine the quality of the light and shaddow effects as well as how ash may be caught in the hollows when it was finished.

  1. Both lovely pots, Bruce. I do something like that top one, which looks like Nuka over Temmoku. That bottom one must have been spectacular in the wood kiln.
