This rare carmine color is highly prized throughout the world wide wood firing  community, especially in Japan.  Their word for it is Hishoku.  I am quite pleased to finally have one of my own from my own firing.

This pot has an overall solid coat of carbon trapping which results in a beautiful glossy blue black surface uniformly all over the pot.  Quite unusual.

This is a pot which was buried in the embers of a Norobigama kiln at the Penland school in North Carolina.  It is called Korogashi in Japanese and means ember diving.
