This vase was hand thrown on the wheel, squared off and then carved to produce a rock-like surface. After brushing on a dark, iron oxide slip, a highly refractory, matt glaze was applied which cracks when fired to over 1200 degrees C. The glaze firing was carried out in a kiln using propane gas and wood.
Measures approx. 4.5 ins in heaight and the same in width across the base. Quite a heavy piece, it will hold water so could be used to display fresh flowers. Carries mark Smalley's personal symbol impressed to the base.
