Black Shino tea pot/cone 11/reduction

`table salt added to the soda ash heated with water and

painted on the entire pot.`

 

 

 

This is the new mel6 clay body, with an old ron roy recipe for a base that i made

into pure white using zircopax and tin, and a black with red iron and cobalt.

Fired to cone 7 in just under 5 hours, with a 2 hour down fire at 1800F.

The kiln is a small 60 amp kiln, and it fires fast, no controller, switches to high.

`the white over oil spots.`
