This vessel is faceted, meaning that clay has been sliced and torn away from the thrown form. What started as a round form is now jagged and angular. The cup utilizes a shino glaze that has a retinue of warm browns, oranges, and whites. The subtle streaks of blacks and greens are visible from the sides come from a wood ash solution.
