Green Yunomi

The weather was more than cooperative so I'm unloading the kiln right now and taking photos. Here's a green yunomi made with my strip stacked construction method which gives a wonderful tactile experience when holding the cup. I'm glad I used green on the interior. I thought white would be too stark. I'm loving my hand feathered underglaze decoration. I can't wait to make a tower with this same decoration. It's funny how one technique can lead me in so many directions. More photos soon. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.


  1. Oooo...I like those finger feathers!

  2. Hmm, think I'll make a cup of tea! (Thanks for the link -- learned a lot. Didn't know there were 'married' meoto (sp) cups as well!)

  3. What a handsome and sturdy little vessel.

  4. That is really beautiful, Linda. So colorful and I love that shade of green.

  5. Hi Suzi, thanks so much. I wish I'd made a whole group of these, next time.

    Hi Barbara, thanks, I need to experiment more using my fingers through the slip and underglazes.

    Hi Kittie, thanks, I didn't know about the marriage yunomi either. Ha.

    Hi Joanne, thanks next time I'll make the foot a little wider I think but sturdy indeed.

    Hi Michele, thanks so much.

    Hi Gigi, thanks, the green is like a spring green I like it too. by the way the red poppy bowl turned out just fine and up in the next post, let me know if you like it and I'll email about the cost.


I love suggestions, questions, critiques, thanks for your comment
