Fill it with flowers, or set it on the mantle all on its own - this piece is an absolute racer. Dramatic, colourful, strong, with juicy drips of melted ash on the side, and textured marks where it was fired on top of seashells.
7.5” wide x 6.5” high
High Iron Stoneware, Coil Built
59 hour anagama firing, reduction cooled.
This piece was fired in a wood-burning kiln, using no electricity or gas. The interior of all my pieces are coated with a food safe glaze, while the outsides are left to be “self-glazed” by the ash, the flame, and the heat of the wood firing process. Their surfaces show dynamic stories that have been carved by hand, and then enhanced by the mark of the fire. The flame path licks and draws, rolls and wraps. Each piece highlights the firing’s history and displays the variation within each kiln load. Like people, no two pieces are ever the same.
