This woodfired Chawan with an iron slip and an American Shino glaze is part of an invitational exhibition at the England Center Gallery in Beebe Arkansas from May 2017 thru July 2017. This exhibition features Emerging Artists in Arkansas, and they have each invited one individual who has been a significant influence on their work. I was honored to have Bobby Lindsay ask me to show with him. Bobby took my pre-NCECA workshop in 2016 about making Chawan.

I have asked this question elsewhere too............If you enter into a competition and they have a specific theme..."chawan", " yonomi" , "tea bowl", "tea cup", "mug" ; How do you define it? How do you decide what to enter? Connie Christensen is our newest online teacher and the question came up when she made accessories to her teapot. Is this just a cultural thing, or is there any significant definitions? What say you? Antoinette Badenhorst www.porcelainbyAntoinette.com www.Teachinart.com
I made the body of these mugs with Hawaiian Red and painted the inside of the bowl with white slip (playing it safe since I wasn't sure which of my glazes would show up on the dark clay). I applied a design of white slip on the outside and when it came time to glaze, I made the inside of the bowl a vivid color that contrasted with the deep brown of the outside, which I covered in clear glaze to avoid the unpleasantness of bare clay scraping against teeth. I'm going to make these bigger next time since they only hold around 6 ounces. I was going for 10 but I haven't learned to account for shrinkage yet. It's all a learning experience!
