today i went to the Minneapolis Institute of Arts with my friend connor. we traveled through the asian arts and spent a lot of time looking at the ceramics collection. here is a handful that i found inspiring.

The decoration was apparently achieved by affixing a leaf to the interior of the bowl 
before immersing it in the iron-rich slurry used to create the dark brown glaze 
used at Chi-chou. In the heat of the kiln, the natural chemicals in the leaf react 
with the glaze, rendering it nearly transparent.
