Description

Mid-sized, round, crackle-textured, wood-fired, cascade bonsai pot.
Hand thrown in light brown stoneware. Textured with a repetitive diagonally biased crackle pattern. Smooth, light base and rim contrast with the dark, rough crackled sides.
Unglazed except for the ash deposits from the wood firing, the texture is enhanced with a cobalt carbonate wash, which colors the cracks black with hints of midnight blue. Where the pot faced the stream of ash in the kiln it has a shinier, lapis-like adornment. The blues contrast with the amber flashing color on the smooth surfaces. Slightly s-curved sides widen gradually to a flared rim. Solidly thrown with substantial weight at the base to counterbalance a cascading tree.
One main drainage hole, six paired anchor holes. Three, long, curve-sided feet.
High-fired, weather resistant.
Signed by the artist. One of a kind.

8 1/4" widest diameter (at flare)
5 1/4" diameter at foot
6 1/8" total height
5 5/8" interior depth

**Wood firing not only uses wood to fuel the kiln, but the ash generated from the wood and flying through the kiln reacts with the clay while it is super heated coloring and glazing the pieces. It requires considerable extra work, time and expense. The result is unpredictable and dynamic, and depends on many variables like the clay, the climate, the type of wood, the texture and the position in the kiln; much like the growth of a bonsai tree can only be controlled so much, and ultimately depends also on the wabi-sabi whims of nature. Because wood firing requires a special kiln and additional challenges and expenses, these wood-fired pots are of more limited availability and have a bit of a price-premium in relation to traditionally fired pots.**

All pots are insured. If damage occurs during shipment, please keep the packaging and contact me ASAP. The cost including shipping will be reimbursed.

Note that for cost and environmental reasons I try to use recycled packing material when possible. I only select clean and fully functional materials, but be aware, you may receive a reused box labelled for something else or mismatched fill material. This helps keep costs down and waste out of the landfill. I encourage you to reuse the materials again, if you have anything to ship.
