white on white

The shapes I threw on the wheel a few weeks ago are finally glazed and out of the kiln. I chose a matte white glaze to accentuate the simplicity of the form. It's usually a clean pure white, but when fired with this particular clay body, which is a high fire stoneware, tiny gray specs appear on the surface, like some bird's eggs. I'm happy with the results.
