Thrown Flask 2 Tsuki-yo Glaze

tsuki-yo Glaze - Moonlit Night

The glaze is a high gloss mirror black which often forms a transparent pale blue halo on the rim revealing the whiteness of the Southern Ice porcelain beneath. In bright light a brilliant azure blue appears in the depths of the black glaze. On the Cone Cups the glaze has created an effect like an aurora in the interiors.
