U know me
I spent the day making yunomi's today. Here is the process. I throw the cups, add a decal from China ( Deck al in Canada and Dee cal in the US). I then cut the window out of the cup and apply my gnar gnar and reinsert it. The gnar gnar is my throwing clay with some Darvan 7 and silica sand added. I add some gobs of gnar gnar around the base of the foot and a wee lug for comfort of handling. These t-bowls are not for sissies. They demand that you look at them when drinking or else you'll cut your lip. Pots like this are the reason I'm not a rich man. It's an aesthetic I wish I was born without.
