This striking vase was thrown on the wheel without a base and later squared off using a wooden paddle. Once leather hard, the base was added along with a thick layer of textured slip. Two layers of different glazes (both containing wood ash) were then applied to create the final finish which combines areas of semi-opaque and transparent surface. The texture also serves to generate interesting, random rivulets and varying depth of glaze and hue.
The interior is coated with a third glaze, a dolomite glaze with copper oxide and carbonate, which creates dark hues of green, purple and copper orange.
Height of the piece is approx. 9 inches.
