Temmoku is a dark glaze with a surface that resembles oilspotting. It is made of feldspar, limestone, and iron oxide. The more quickly a piece is cooled, the blacker the glaze will be. Tenmoku takes its name from the 天目 (Mandarin: tiān mù; Japanese: ten moku; English: Heaven's Eye) mountain temple in Chinawhere iron-glazed bowls were used for tea. (wikipedia)
