I threw this lidded piece with a white stoneware, and before I glazed it I used wax resist to create the horse eye design. It is glazed with gold shino and the lid received a blasting of wood ash. It was fired in a wood kiln with excellent reduction which gave it a wonderful lustrous iridescent finish.

The pot holds 3 full cups and would be a perfect container for a side dish.

It measures 7-1/2" in diameter and is 3" tall.

As always, my pottery is food, dishwasher, and microwave safe.

*****************************************************************************
WOOD FIRING: It all begins with chopping many cords of wood! It takes a team of potters, friends or family to fire a wood kiln. The first day or two is devoted to loading the kiln then sealing the various chambers. The fire is started and stoking (inserting wood by hand) continues at regular intervals over the next 2-3 days depending on the desired temperature. The kiln demands constant attention and it takes an incredible amount of time and energy to achieve desired temperature. It then takes another 2 days for the kiln to cool enough to open. It is this process that accounts for the typically higher price of wood fired pots.

During the firing process the continual addition of wood causes the temperature to rise and wood ash to fly. Ash settles on the pottery, melts, and forms a natural glaze. Ash also combines with glazes creating gorgeous variations in color, texture, and surface thickness. The outcome varies from smooth and glossy to roughly textured and gnarly. Placement in the kiln, density and nearness of other pots, and oxidation or reduction environment all affect the outcome of each pot. It is rare to find two identical pieces of pottery from a wood fired kiln.
