Wood Fired Puff Vessel with Carbon Trapping
This vessel has very unique dark carbon trapping splotches from the shino glaze applied to it before wood firing!
This vessel was fired in the East Creek anagama, a 40' long kiln in Willamina, Oregon. This pot was glazed before firing, giving it a more luscious feel and encouraging some of the carbon trapping you see in the dark splotches here. The surface colors and textures on this pot are created 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 & glaze 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.
