Ocean Meditation II

325.00

This piece was thrown in two separate parts; the base and then the neck. It was dried under very controlled conditions until the clay could be handled, it was then conjoined to make one piece. Liquid slip clay was added to the belly to create the textural pattern. After being dried very slowly over several weeks it was fired to 1000 degrees centigrade. Hand painted with several layers of two glazes; a lagoon blue and white. It was fired a second time for over 24 hours to over 1200 degrees. My potter's mark is on the base.

Dimensions (approx):

Height: 1ft / 12inches, 30.5cm

Diameter: 6 inches, 15cm

Weight: 2.2kg

Made using lead free glazes.
