Here is a tokuri from the firing I just opened. It is
a "whole pot" test tile. It is about a foot tall. Folks used to
keep these in their homes and mosey them down to the corner sake shop to
get them filled with sake to take home. (Before throwaway containers.)

The top is Sage (Seiji) Nuka ( copper green rice straw ash glaze) and
the bottom is the first time I put my nami jiro (wood ash from my wood
stove) glaze on a pot, at the bottom:
