Forest Jar


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