12cm top diameter x 11.5cm deep highest point, 8cm lowest point
This unusual shaped pot is wheel thrown and then carved into a new irregular shaped rim. The pot was burnished, coated in terrasigillata, a superfine slip, before bisque firing then pit firing. There are some quite vibrant colours and unusual graphic markings on the surface and it is possible to see all sorts of images within them.
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
