Art Description

Sculpture: Clay on Ceramic.

Please note: this piece is NOT WATERTIGHT, please DO NOT attempt to put water into it, it will discolour the pot and possibly flood and stain your furniture. It is also a little heavy.
However, I think this is a little beauty!
It was thrown on the wheel in one piece from red earthenware, turned and marked the next day. Left to dry for about a week. Given a bisque firing at 1000 oc. Decorated with 3 luscious thick brushed on coats of Cobalt Blue matte glaze. Left at least overnight before a second glaze firing at 1040 oc.
The crystals expand under the intense heat of the kiln to form these jewel like droplets on the matte glaze.
