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.
