Beautiful bottle made of white stoneware. Side-wadded in the kiln to produce wadding marks with trailing comets of color. Wood ash buildup on the "top" of the piece. An exquisite example of the contrast between wadding and ash and what it can do to amplify a beautiful ceramic vessel.
This piece was fired in a Japanese style Noborigama kiln. The piece fired for ~ 30 hours. Noborigama 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!
