Every smoke fired vessel is handmade and time is taken to ensure each is a masterpiece.
Each vessel is birthed in fire. To acheive the rich colouring and swirls the delicate vessel is literally burnt amongst carefully chosen combustible materials for a number of hours. The fuels are selected for their mineral content that impart soft yet striking colours to form a patina over the vessel during the firing. Copper oxide might give delicate blushes of pink while the smoke itself creates a striking black contrast to the light clay body.
This is a decorative piece and will not hold water as the body remains porous.
