This beautiful blue exposed coil vase is about 6 1/2 inches tall and 6 inches wide. The exterior is finished with burnished green and tan Terra sigillata with traces of blues then washed with oxides to create a stone-like smooth surface that invites the hand. The interior is finished with a deep greenish blue and a turquoise glaze.

The base was coiled and smoothed, then each individual pattern in the surface was created by rolling out a piece of clay and shaping it into the motif. The individual motifs were then placed and filled around with more coiled and rolled shapes, and the inside smoothed together to lock it all in place. Once the piece was completed (a process done over several days as the finished areas had to dry slightly in order to support the next area constructed) it was allowed to dry very slowly.

This piece had terra sigillata applied and burnished before the first firing, then after the firing the exterior was washed with oxides and the interior glazed. A second firing to stoneware temperatures finishes off the piece.
