My sculptural Hikidashi yunomi made by Akira below. The thicker walled yunomi absorbs heat very well and its shape funnels aromatics ideally. The chamfered chiseled base receives the hand gracefully, like an offering to rest into. It is a work of art with real presence and feels perfect to hold and drink from. I was looking for a cup with strong character to pair with roasted oolongs and this is it, in cold winter months warming the hands.
Hikidasi “500 year-old Japanese technique which involves firing to an extreme temperature. Each piece is removed from the kiln, glowing red hot, using long metal tongs. They are rapidly cooled and placed in water.” from Akira’s web site
I asked Akira about his glaze on my yunomi;
An example of unfired yunomi, provided by Akira Satake:Victoria, This is the color of clay before fired. Your Yunomi has shino glaze and splash of oribe glaze (has very small amount of copper in it ) After pull out from kiln (2300F) put in saw dust to get reduction and go to water to cool down. It's called Hikidashi.
