Color Shade Variations
Each piece has individual color shade variations. Affected by glazes and natural firing conditions such as changes in temperature, humidity and other climate elements and also how to receive the fire in the kiln chamber, each piece has own expression. It is really difficult to make the completed ware exactly same in color by firing and glazing even when the same materials are used. 100 pieces show 100 kinds of expressions, as it were.
There are color irregularities of applying a glaze or slip, which are different from part to part in a piece of ware. For example, some parts are glazed thinly or thickly depending on the shape of the ware. That leads to part-to-part subtle differences in appearance of the clay in a piece of ware.
Glaze or Slip Drips
The glaze or slip may look like dripping. There is unevenness of a glaze or slip when they are applied to ware by hand. There also appear glaze drips or slip drips, which are caused by the glaze or slip flows during firing.
Pinholes may be seen clearly on the surface. Pottery (earthenware) is mainly made from earth, and green ware contains a lot of air while biscuit firing. While glazed firing, this air inside the biscuit ware becomes air bubbles, which remain and look like small holes on the surface of the glazed part. Those small holes are called pinholes.
