Large and uncommon glass crucible from Shigaraki Japan. Shigaraki clay has a high groat content which allows for extreme contrast in temperature. The crucible was placed on its side in a large wood burning kiln until the glass inside would flux. A heavy deposit of molten glass and wood ash has adhered to the exterior top as well as the interior. Rare.
