Black and clear tea cup featuring plum blossoms, which are related to February or March. I am very intrigued by how the clear reacts with the shiny black.
Oh yes. :D
At first glance, this mug might look uglier than heck… But it has a cool story.
I personally mixed the clay that came straight out of the ground here in Astoria with some other minerals (that my teacher suggested, didn’t really know what I was doing there) and local rocks, seashells, and bits of crab shell.
It was fired in a wood fired (anagama) kiln.
The glaze I used was clear and all the color on this mug came straight from the wood.
It was fired in that kiln for 6 days, which took 6 straight 24 hour days of people in my class (including myself) throwing wood in every 5 or so minutes.
This mug, among a few other I have, is the result of a lot of work.
It is characteristic of this place and nowhere else.
It has been produced by me and the land.
Work fresh out of the kiln. Cazenovia pot sale Saturday/Sunday!!!

ive been meaning to make work-related comics forever, so enjoy some choice movie title bastardizations.
(these all actually, seriously, happened, with no humor or awareness on the part of the customer at the time as far as I could tell. so, yes, someone actually asked for a ticket to “Detergent” with a straight face.)
