Bottle w/ Turquoise/Copper Color...

Bottle W/ Turquoise
12in.H x 8in.W
this extraordinary copper color happened one time only,
on this pot and no others throughout all the tests and firings of the crackle
It looks like the color of an old copper penny with turquoise /green highlights...
I have been unable to reproduce it, though I have attempted to many times...
sometimes you get lucky!


  1. There are many benefits to be enjoyed by storing water in copper vessels before drinking. Ancient Ayurveda medical texts have recommended storing water in copper. At this time when the world is riddled with pollution, our countrymen are using high potency tablets even for minor problems which is spreading poison in their bodies.

    1. this bottle 's interior is covered with a high fired shino glaze, which has been used in Japan for a number of centuries for safe food serving...the many layers of firing on the outside are of a glaze fired over the same shino glaze...this is a clay bottle, not a metal copper one...
