I threw this little stoneware pitcher while playing with shapes. I added a crooked handle, like some ancient pieces of pottery I've seen. The shino glaze took on that beautiful apricot color on the iron rich clay body. Notice the tiny droplet of glaze on the lip of the spout. Cute!

Use this piece on a window sill with a few of your favorite posies or use it to serve small amounts of syrup, cream or a sauce.

Food, dishwasher and microwave safe, it holds 1 cup and is 4-1/2" tall x 4-1/2" diameter.

*****************************************************************************
WOOD FIRING: It all begins with chopping many cords of wood! It takes a team of potters, friends and/or family to fire a wood kiln. The first day or two is devoted to loading the kiln then sealing the various chambers. Once the fire is started stoking 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 temperature and desired results. It's a non-stop workout until temperature is achieved and 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 ash to fly. As ash settles on the pottery it melts forming 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 and/or reduction environments all affect the outcome of each pot. It is rare to find two identical pieces of pottery from a wood fired kiln.
