Celedon and Shino

Here are a few things I got out of the kiln this week. New cups for the cupboard. Choy Blue Celedon and Carbon Trap Shino.
This is the first teapot I have made on the wheel. I have hand built some but I think I like making them on the wheel. The glaze is Malcolm's Shino. The liner is Chun Clear and the spill over the edge is Chun with Malcolm on top. I like the way this looks. One small problem, my kettle has a short fat spout and it's hard to pour the water in. Solution: I need a new tea kettle for Christmas!

This is the first mug that I have made and been happy with. Handles make me crazy and they are usually too fat at the bottom. I really like this one. Malcolm Shino again. this cup feels good!
Merry Christmas everybody!!!
