"Iranian Buddhist"

"A Buddhist from Iran who followed the Koran,
  Said "Violence! I'm sitting cross legged!"

One of my ceramic boxes listed on Etsy. Been making quite a number of these lately. For me the adrenaline rush comes from drawing with a brush of oxide wash and painting rapidly on the white porous unfired Shino glaze. It's like drawing with India ink. No goofs allowed.

For you potters out there this is a Fergusen-McKenzie shino lightly reduced starting at around Cone 08 fired to finish at cone 10.

This is one of three such boxes with a Buddhist theme.
