More Iridescence

Here are a few more photos of recent work showing iridescence (darn that word is hard to spell !!!)

This one was done a few weeks ago. The camera didn't pick up the shimmering colors interplaying on the outside surface but the colors do gleam in the sunshine beguiling the eye with their magical changeability.

These are the inside surfaces of the cups shown yesterday. It intrigues me that the same glazes and same chems applied in post firing reduction will flash primarily either gold or silver depending on the cup.

This bowl is most intriguing. Wish the photo had come out a little better. When held in one direction, a Samurai warrior is clearly visible. Yet when the bowl is turned slightly silvers and golds visually overpower the warrior. Hmmm . . . wonder if that applies to real life?
Here's to great and glorious days
