Wrapped Vessel (wv005), terra cotta pot wrapped with orange sedge and abalone shell, by Nansee New, Casa Luz

These little vessels are turned on a wheel and hand carved. The piece has been burnished (polished) by hand as it dries. This compacts the clay and gives it a shiny surface. Later, after a preliminary bisque firing, the piece is fired with sawdust in an earth kiln. This firing gives it the luscious patina. These tiny treasures are wrapped with orange sedge, which is fastened with waxed linen and adorned with beads or shell. The sedge is quite stable and will last indefinitely if not subjected to unusually dry heat or dampness. Burnished pieces are not meant to hold water.

This piece measures approximately 3 1/2" x 2 1/2 "
It is adorned with beads of abalone shell
