Wheel thrown, wood fired stoneware bud vase.
Approx. 9cm D x 9.5cm H
Note- hand washing recommended for best care. All items are made individually by hand, so subtle difference and variation may occur.
All pots are fired in my wood fired kiln to 1280 degrees. I glaze and decorate once dry and fire from raw clay (no bisque firing), packing the kiln over a two day period. I fire the pots for around 32 hours purely with wood. During this time when the kiln has reached the right temperature I spray in bicarbonate of soda over a 3-4 hour period. Before ending with a soak and final temperature reach. The kiln takes around 3-4 days to cool, in which time I nervously await to see the results!
The process of wood firing results in each pot having an unique appearance, which gives each one it's own character and personality adding to its charm and warmth. Each pot is individually crafted so no two are exactly alike.
