about this piece:

"Vase/Hanaire," #00-171

18 cm x 11.5 cm x 12 cm


This vase was Shino glazed, then sprinkled with Oak ash, fluxes, and colorants, before being side-fired on shells for 15 days in a firing fueled with Cottonwood. Colors range from pale celedon, white, yellow, and gold, to green, blue, pink, purple, and red. Carbon-trapping in the clay body produced some deep gray-blues. Textures range from dry-ash-encrusted to glassy, with the large drip at the foot mingling glassy and dry crystalline portions.
