(Grog is used in pottery and sculpture to add a gritty, rustic texture called "tooth".)
I love the grog in this clay because it adds speckles and texture to the
fired, unglazed clay, resembling (to me) a building material.
The little squares on the vase look like windows, a few of which have been highlighted
with underglaze. The texture has been emphasized with a copper oxide wash.
The inside has been finished in a clear glaze in order to allow the pottery to hold water.
The vase stands 9.5" tall, is 8" wide across the top, and about 4" deep (front to back).
