Michael Posner has an abiding interest in Oil Spot glazes which , on a visit to Japan he first saw Oil Spot at a pottery in Toki. Michael was taken with this astonishingly beautiful glaze which is one of a array of iron based glazes which are highly prized in Japan.

Michael through the generosity of the Shigaraki potter Hozan Tani was accepted as a member of his pottery. He was accepted to study Oil Spot glazing in the Shigaraki Ceramic Research Institute, with its director Dr Takai one of three Japanese leading experts on the glaze. Michael has visited Japan on three more occasions including one visit for an extended study period at the Institute.

Michael Posner removing a bowl from the kiln at top temperature as part of the oilspot firing method. This process halts and fixes the growth of iron crystals suspended in the molten glaze. Not recommended for
the faint hearted!
