Shino exp. continued…

Here are some additional shino experiments from a subsequent firing. No
added/sprinkled wood ash. Again, it's a just personal taste, but I like
the charred parts on the foot.

I'll be including some weathered chunky feldspar in the glaze mix for
the next round of tests. Hoping to get some of that sugary surface like
authentic shino.

Pics of the chawan were taken after it spent time in the 'aging tank',
which is a tannin soup, made by steeping chestnut husks in water. I
originally made this solution for dissolving the brown film from the
surface of green oribe glaze. Stinky, but safer than working with
concentrated acid.
