A useful, elegant vase for display and flower arranging. The glaze is rich red where thick and transparent where thinner.
The vase was hand thrown on the wheel and then textured and impressed when soft leather hard. After biscuit firing at 950C it was glazed with a copper red glaze. It was then fired to cone 12, around 1300C.
The wheel thrown pots are textured and impressed to cause variations in glaze thickness and hence colour. I make my own glazes with a wide range of fluxes and oxides and select the clay body to bring out the colour potential of each glaze. The pots are reduction-fired in a gas kiln to about 1300C giving glaze surfaces that reflect the turbulence of the gas flow and its oxygen level. They are number stamped, photographed and recorded in a database to build a library of information for future use. The finished pots are safe for food, in the oven and in the dishwasher.
