Tiny Wood & Soda Fired Wide Flared Vessel


A vessel from my tiniest series of pots to-date. It turns out that tiny pots are just as difficult to make - if not moreso - than pots 4x their size due to the precision involved!

There's something satisfying about being able to put a pot in your pocket, or keep it somewhere mores sensible like a desk or altar to make you smile. I also want to adhere one to my car dashboard..

Approx 2"W x 2.5"H.

This vessel has no exterior glaze: all the coloration you see was created purely by wood & soda ash interacting with the clay body during the course of a wood & soda firing.

It was wood & soda fired in the ChickenCat catenary arch kiln at East Creek in Willamina, Oregon. This kiln days about 3-4 days for both loading & firing, a few more days to cool and then one additional day to unload & clean (clean up includes grinding glaze/glass off the many shelves with an angle grinder, grinding and vaccuming out the kiln floor, etc.)
