Two More Pots By Fukudenji Sensei.

These two pots by Fukudenji Sensei show the unusual murasaki, or purple, colour which we could only achieve on a few occasions. These were on pots stacked close to the fire where embers built up over them and only slowly burned away. Trouble was that in this area pots often got broken with the wood spreading too far sideways when we stoked. Anagama kilns can produce wonderful colours but not without risk.

  1. Powerful pots. Beautiful surfaces, I wish I could handle these kinds of pots for the sense of weight and texture.
