Item details

Handmade

Materials

clay, glaze, Masking tape

This lovely pottery vessel would make a nice addition to your living room or on the fireplace mantle, or in your office. It is a beautiful shade of green with a black collar and a black linear design.

Size:10" H x 61/2" W

I threw this vessel on the wheel then bisque fired it in an electric kiln (1st firing) . After the bisque firing, I masked certain areas, and glaze was brushed on and then the masking was removed and fired in a gas kiln using traditional American raku firing methods. After reaching approximately 1800 degrees, the pot was taken out of the kiln while it was still molten hot and put into a container with sawdust and crumbled newspaper, and a lid was quickly put onto the container. The thermal shock resulted from removing the pot from the kiln to the open air then placed in the can created the cracks in the glaze. The smoke is absorbed into those cracks. The carbon from the smoke is absorbed into the unglazed area which makes the black lines.

Raku is a low fired ware and will not hold water. It is for decorative use only. If you wish to use it for fresh flowers, you will need some kind of a liner inside.. There are many sized plastic glasses that will fit inside, or you can use silk flowers if you wish. Only dust as needed.


Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Thank you for visiting my shop and convo me if you have any questions. Have a nice day!

Any actual shipping costs overpaid by $1 or more will be reimbursed.

Returns and exchange details

I carefully pack each order to ensure its safe arrival at your door. In the unlikely event of any breakage I will hold either myself or the shipper responsible. I will file all claims with the shipper, and work with you to replace the items or offer you a refund. All I ask is that you provide me with photographs of the breakage including the packaging as the shipping vendor will need to see this.

My hope is that you will be happy with your purchase. I try hard to provide accurate descriptions and pictures of my items, and to price them fairly. Please email me with any questions prior to your purchase.

When you receive your order, if you are not happy with your purchase please email me and I’ll try my best to work it out with you with another piece or refund the purchase price only. Shipping cost will not be refunded.

Shipping policies

I will ship within 2-3 BUSINESS days of receiving your confirmed payment, usually sooner if possible. My preferred method of shipping is USPS for small items and FedEx for heavier items. If I am shipping via FedEx and you have a PO Box, I will need the actual street address as FedEx will not deliver to Post Office Boxes.

I will ALWAYS reimburse shipping overages of $1.00 or more. I don't like paying for shipping any more than you do. Unfortunately, this year (2016) I saw a price increase in costs. If I didn't charge enough, then that's my loss, which frequently happens.

The post office, doesn't consider anything lost until 30 days have passed.

Payments

PayPal is preferred method of payment. Payment is expected within within 3 days of your purchase via PayPal. If I do not receive payment, I will send you an email letting you know the purchase will be canceled in 24 hours if payment is not received.

Additional policies

Save time & money! I will ship any gift directly to its recipient for you. Just let me know the occasion and your message, and I'll include a free gift card.

I am sorry I am unable to ship to other countries, the cost is just too high for heavier pieces of pottery.
