Anagama faceted tokkuri


Anagama fired tokkuri from the May firing at the Oxford anagama kiln, thrown on the wheel and then faceted.  All the pots went in the kiln completely unglazed and were wood-fired for 3 days and 3 nights. The kiln reached 1300 degrees C which means the clay is absolutely vitrified. All the colours, hues and marks are the result of flames and ash in the kiln atmosphere. A porcelain vase fell against it during the firing and it still bears the trace with a tiny bit of porcelain still stuck to it (see images 3 and 4). Holds about 180ml.

The maker’s mark is at the bottom of the pot.
