The whole set. The dark blue is called Namako Blue. It is a colour with a lot of depth and differing tonality. The colour ranges from a brown green to a white blue depending on the amount of glaze applied and the dripping, firing etc. Apparently this is a glaze of Japanese origin developed in the Meiji Era. I think its gorgeous. The light blue has very little blue pigment in it, I think it is because was an old glaze and has been used a lot already. I've glazed some more of my smaller objects and hope to collect them soon if they have been fired. I will put pictures up when I get them back.
