This is a soda fired earthenware bottle with a rainbow decoration. It has a porcelain slip and underglazes on the exterior.
My 11 year old son sculpted the fox that is playing on the rim of this piece
Approximately 10” x 4” x 4”
I have written a book, Low Fire Soda, about the processes involved in creating this piece. Many surface variations exist on this pottery which I find interesting and fun. I often add sand, small pieces of feldspar, or other additives to create textures within the clay. I also dip each piece in a porcelain slip to add contrast between the dark clay, and the light color of slip. These added variations can cause surface cracks, textures, and other unexpected outcomes. This is what I'm seeking.
If, for whatever reason, you're unhappy with the variations on this piece, please inquire about an exchange. I'm aware that these experimentations are not always what everyone is seeking. This research is ever evolving, and I'm pleased you're taking part in this research with my by supporting my work with a purchase.
