What's up with this myth about Shino.....I have heard the same things, but
my customers all love Shino..."It's so smooth and buttery" problem
here selling Shino... from the first time I used it. I even use Shino as a
liner glaze on most of my pots, even the "Cobalt Blues".

......And by all means we must price our pots for what they are worth....My
mechanic charges $80.00 per parts....and he never has a '20%
Off Sale' or a seconds bin.
