Stoneware pottery vase with hand cut vertical lines on the exterior. Ideal as a contemporary ornament or for displaying flowers
Hand building process
Each vase is made from grey stoneware clay, which dries to an off white. This vase has been hand built by rolling clay, joining the pieces together with slip and once leather hard, hand cutting designs on the exterior. The vase has two firings, the first to around 1100 degrees centigrade and the second, to over 1200 degrees. As the vase is handmade, the shapes can be irregular – each item is unique! The process takes more than 2 weeks to complete – this allows for the original rolling out, drying before the first firing, glazing and then final firing and cooling. The vase has been glazed on the exterior with a white satin and on the inside with a clear gloss. The hand cut sections have been left unglazed to allow the texture of the raw clay to show.
The price is for one vase, handmade in my studio in the Surrey Hills
