Yesterday’s firing was a big success and the glaze surfaces on the pots turned out absolutely great. I’m really happy with the new ohata kaki red glaze as it is wonderfully consistent from firing to firing. On the past dozen or so firings, there have been no technical problems such as glaze running or pinholing. And the colors are pretty consistent: these photos were shot in available light with no photoshop adjusting. They just look this vivid! So today I’m launching my ohata kaki red line. I’ve added twenty-six new items to my online store and we have a lot of them in multiples so they can be shipped within twenty-four hours of when you place your order. If you wish to purchase a set of mugs and you want it sent ASAP, please email me first to see if we have the quantity you want in stock. Also, please note that the nesting bowls and dinnerware sets are sold at a discount if you purchase all three together. Dinnerware sets are available upon request and I can do custom shapes for the bowls if my standard shape isn’t quite what you want. Below are just some of the items we have for sale:
