Shino test vase

I like to make little vases in order to test glazes. If it comes out well, at least I have a little vase to put on a shelf or, in the summer, put my miniature roses in. It's a little over 3 inches tall. On this one, I drew a design made with a mix of black iron oxide and cobalt oxide under the glaze to see if it would show through.  The glaze is coyote's shino #042. The thicker the layer of this glaze the more cream color and less of the rust.
