Morning coffee with Adam Field

Adam very generously gave me this large faceted yunomi/cup during our visit this last week. He said it had been through more than one firing, I don’t recall how many exactly, but it really has a surface that reflects the various firing environments. Really heavy ash runs, fluxed heavily on one side by soda, making a dark brown glaze full of light crystals where it breaks thin.
The inside is a clear crackle, with a small pool of light green in the very bottom. It is a large cup, heavy but not too heavy, and has nice balance in either one or two hands.

This is one of those cups that gets more interesting every time you examine it, and I’m looking forward to seeing how it ‘grows up’ over time.
