This Gem is already with me for couple of weeks- I just could not find few free minutes, with good light, to take pictures of it. After all, it is not going anywhere. So finally here it is- unglazed shiboridashi with cup. It is very simple, just like a stone. It was fired in part of the kiln where, when temperature reaches its top, we throw in charcoal. It is technique full of surprices, but it usually creates earthy, matt or/and rusty colors and surfaces. On this fine, pale stoneware we sometimes find this kind of lovely, multicolored and pleasant to touch surface which you can see on this fourth Gem.
