11.5cm top diameter x 14cm deep
This pot is hand thrown, burnished, coated in terrasigillata ( a superfine slip), polished, bisque fired and then pit fired to achieve this effect of blackened and coloured areas with graphic markings that look as if they have been drawn with charcoal. All this is painted and drawn by the fire alone, and is unique. Everyone sees something different in the markings and they can sometimes bear a ressemblance to ancient cave paintings.
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
