@Phill  Thanks for suggesting Studio Yunomi.  I took a look and now have in my possession two of his mugs and love them.  One white one and the green one that was on the last page.  They are just a perfect fit for the hand, fit the lip well and are eye candy.  AND they have inspired me to keep practicing!  Funny thing too that I had ordered some 266 the week before your posting.

@Evelyne  Thank you for your suggestions which I've slept on and continue to think about.  Here in the US, we are in the middle of a wonderful holiday of Thanksgiving and I've had 2 wonderful days with my family and the fun continues tomorrow.  The time here is 10 pm and I'm exhausted in such a good way.  I've been on your web site tonight and again visited the gallery to view examples of your work.  My very favorite pieces are the brown pot, the tan triangle pot sitting on the ball feet, the free form bark and last but not least, the black and white disk with the fish imprints.  Quoting one of my Brit friends, "I'm gobb smacked" and that's a very good thing!

Pres, You just answered a why did it crawl question for me.  Pots that I had glazed on a rainy afternoon August 2013 had crawling in the contrasting second glaze dip.  I sought answers but there were no consistent answers among the studio potters.  So, should the pots sit for a few days before the second dip or warm under lights or a heat gun? 

 

Also, thanks for discussing the various types of water in bone dry greenware.  Fascinating.
