Tallest Wood Fired Zigzag Vessel, Handbuilt
This the largest work I have ever made! Handbuilt using coils.
This vessel was fired in the East Creek anagama, a 40' long kiln in Willamina, Oregon. This pot was unglazed on the exterior when it was put into the kiln; the surface colors and textures on this pot are created entirely by molten wood ash traveling through the kiln over the course of 5/6 days and nights, with phases of heating and cooling, which interacts with the clay body and creates the effects you see here. The kiln reach temperatures up to 2800 degrees fahrenheit. This is truly an alchemical process, a collaboration with nature which brings character and uniqueness to every piece. Each result is truly one-of-a-kind.
PLEASE NOTE there are two small chips in the front of the vessel, as you can see in the first photo to the top/left of the crescent moon shape. It is discounted accordingly.
PLEASE ALSO NOTE This piece is very large, so shipping is going to cost more than the included $15. I will bill you separately for shipping after you tell me where you live. If you are in/around Portland, Oregon, free pick up is the preferred option!
