Hikidashi shino teabowl cone 6
After talking with Akira Satake (http://www.akirasatake.com/) during his show at Crimson Laurel gallery in Bakersville (http://crimsonlaurelgallery.com/),
I decided to try my hand at Hikidashi Shino, which means "pulled from the kiln".
As you can see below: This is a shino glazed tea bowl which was pulled, with metal tongs, from my kiln at about cone 6 (2200 F).
I set it on a brick and let it cool.
You can also see a photo of the door with the lintel brick spanning the 6 bricks which were removed during the firing.
