This piece is made with Nara ^5-6 porcelain bisque fired to 07 and then sprayed with two layers. Spearmint over whole piece and Variegated Blue over the top and shoulder. The blue on the sides is a reflection from the San Diego sky. :-) The inside was done with Variegated Blue.

don- love this pot! could you post the glazes that were used. also would be interested if the glazes were sprayed or dipped or brushed.  i wish you could do this for all your pots. all of them are lovely, but if you posted the info with each pot we would not have to ask additional questions.  it really is nice to have all the info together with the photo.

Almost look like carbon trapping, very pretty

the glaze is rapturous, of course , but the feet, though subtle, increase the value of this pot greatly.

This is so pretty. Can you please share what glaze this is?
