(SH) Shino

Influenced by the humble earthiness of tea ceremony bowls, our Shino glazes give a traditional high-iron look to any high fire clay body. Beautiful on textured or smooth clay bodies, blendable to get the right degree of matte or glossy surface.

Shino glazes can also be layered with our PC line of glazes for different effects.

•Heavy Iron reduction look in oxidation
