Tea bowl/Bourbon tumbler

40.00

This tumbler was fired in a Japanese style Anagama kiln and is made of a stoneware clay. The piece fired for ~ 100 hours. It is a great example of a reduction close down on a woodkiln.  It stayed slightly dry in its appearance but has amazing colors in the yellow, orange, red, rust range.  The piece itself has great vertical shape and crusty tactile hand feel.

Anagama kilns are fired using an ancient technique used in Asia in the 5th century! 

My wood-fire pieces are literally one of a kind and simply can not be re-produced exactly even if I wanted to. The claybody, firing, wood used, placement in the kiln could all be replicated and the kiln would still choose to "glaze" and fire the piece differently.

The buildup of wood-ash throughout the firing melts and naturally glazes the pot. It gives this piece its beautiful, one of a kind, rustic finish!

Functional tumbler.
Food, microwave and dishwasher safe.
