Femme Phoenix One

Copyright Julie Vaux 2015

The next Technozi sequence will be about Phoenixes.

The Male Feng has a Consort the Huang.

I am now on Etsy

Would anyone be interested in seeing or even buying a PDF album of some of my most popular technozi  which would include instructions on how I craft them?

Some Modern Oribe

#Oribe #japaneseCeramics #ceramics

Here's a few examples of the use of the Oribe glaze by contemporary potters

First 2 #SuzukiGoro pieces

2 #KatoYasukage Works

The final piece is a Shatrov platter by an Australian working with oribe glazes just to remind you you don't have to be Japanese!

Traditional Oribe

#japaneseceramics #oribe #mino #ceramics

Here's some examples of traditional #Japanese #ceramic #Oribe glaze and style.
some are momoyama antiquities and others modern copies of traditional ORIBE.

My next Oribe post will show how some 20th potters have used the glaze and style.

Some Notes

As well as copper glaze partially covering an area of white slip with patterns there is "BLACK" Oribe black and white patterns using Oribe shapes and AO-Oribe in which the green glaze covers most of the vessel.

now for some modern one stuff inspired by ORIBE 

this one was made by a noted australian ceramicist

one of my attempts 

and a beautiful modern australian example of Ao- Oribe to finish

Some Oribe


We were discussing the #Oribe Glaze and Style down at #wac

Here's some Images from my personal collection.

Oribe is a Copper based #Mino glaze and also a wabisabi assymetrical style of shaping vessels and ... well enjoy the pictures!

First an overview of #minoyaki in general


Authentic Antique ORIBE 

and now a modern piece 

While you can use some of the keywords I've provided to do your own research let me know if you want to see more of my collection. 
I've got a lot of minoyaki imagery on file!

Well there's no way I could get the tradition 100 onto a png or jpg too big to read as a blog post !

Yes this is XI 3 and 12 examples of things you can do to #hanzi with #inkscape by varying fonts color and filters and mixtures thereof.
