Forest Floor Jar


A hand made Forest Floor Jar with a curvy, four footed bottom.  Made with a high iron content clay and painted with porcelain slip before texturing and stretching. 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 tenmoku glazed interior is smooth and dark and holds water.
