SHINO GLAZE

Shino Glazes were first created in 16th century Japan during the Momoyama period. After a brief popularity, there was an extended period where Shinos were rarely used. In the 1970's, Virginia Wirt, of the University of Minnesota, reproduced the Shino glaze using soda ash and spodumene. The recipe inspired many variations to the glaze, which excited many American potters. Shino glazes are unpredictable and characterized by fiery oranges and reds upon milky whites. Under reduction firing, they can trap the carbon from excess fuel to form dark, spotted areas known as "Carbon Trap."
