6.5cm top diameter x 9cm deep
This special little pot was wheel thrown, bisque fired and then wrapped in various natural materials including birch bark. The pot was then pit fired and when cleaned up, revealed some colours and markings remarkably similar to the birch bark that was fired with it. The texture of the clay surface also contribute to the bark like effect.
All markings and colours are created by the flames, smoke and natural additions wrapped around the pot during firing. All pit or barrel fired pots are unique and will never be replicated. The colours and marks are dictated by a complex combination of variables unique to the particular firing. For a full description of the pit/barrel firing process, please go to the pitfiring page of the website.
Ornamental use only.The pot is not waterproof and is not suitable for food. The colours are permanent, but the surface can be rewaxed using a liquid wax polish from time to time using a soft cloth. Not suitable for a dishwasher
