Wood Fired Small Zigzag Planter, Second/Discounted

$55.00 / Sold Out

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.

This was fired on the front shelf of the anagama, causing it to be covered with many layers of wood ash glaze. It has gorgeous variety, with colors ranging from lavender to seafoam, with lots of crackled glaze details. Pretty hypnotizing details all around, especially in natural light :)

PLEASE NOTE that the bottom of this planter is missing a shallow chunk on the bottom. This is common when chipping wood fired work off kiln shelves while unloading, especially in the front of the kiln where this is a lot of glaze from excessive wood ash (which is what gives the most beautiful surfaces!) The bottom is smooth and level. You can see a very shallow chunk missing from the base of the vessel when it is right-side up. It has been discounted accordingly!
