Forest Floor Flask 3


A hand made Forest Floor Flask with dark iron tenmoku glazed interior.  Made with a high iron content clay and layered with porcelain slip before stretching and carving. The exterior surface is left unglazed. It reminds me of wet leaf litter in the scrubby birch forests of West Scotland. This piece has been wood fired with local pine which has given it a rich toasted surface with areas of satin sheen where most exposed to the flame. The interior glaze is smooth and dark and holds water.
