Asia Pattern Cup

60.00

Approx. size = 4" tall.
This asia pattern cup, traditionally called a yunomi (every day cup for tea) is made by screen-printing patterns in iron onto paper and then transferring them onto the piece halfway through the wheel-throwing stage, a process the artist has dubbed "Volumetric Image Transfer". The pots are fired to 2300ºF and cooled without oxygen until 1375º, a process known as "Reduction Cooling" designed to retain the clay's black Iron color from the reduction of oxygen in the iron molecule.
