Takuro Kuwata - how does he do it?

Recommended Posts

I absolutely love his work and am frequently asked by students how he does.... but the answer always eludes me!

https://www.yellowtrace.com.au/takuro-kuwata-radical-pottery/

From what I gather, he uses very thick - probably feldspathic - glazes, which he arrests the descent of down his pots by inserting nails that form an anchor. That at least explains the highly controlled crawling/beading of his glazes but I can't understand how he achieves that amazing metal lustre in his glazes? I find it hard to believe it is hand-applied lustre but looks more like something in the recipe of the glaze itself. Is anyone able to shed any light on this? 

He recently posted this (file attached) - I have no idea what the yellow tape is and function it serves.
