Handcrafted white stoneware (Danish porcelain) ewer and dipping bowl made on the potter's wheel. Thrown and altered bowl and ewer, high fired to 2350 degrees f. in a soda kiln. Both pieces are flashed in the soda vapors to a toasty, almost copper color and accented with a soft creamy yellow, and accented with strokes of green, daubed with red. We use our ewer to serve good olive oil for dipping fresh bread, olives and cheese. Ewer holds 10 oz. of oil, plenty for your dinner party.

Dipping bowl: 7 x 7 x 2 in.
Ewer: 5" h x 6" w spout to handle

These ewers are relatively new forms, fun to make, and I think they will look good on the dinner table. The soda surfaces, with their muted, almost leather like finishes, are getting to be exactly what I am hunting for, and I look forward to making many more.

Food, microwave, and dishwasher safe

Soda firing is a dramatic process similar to salt glazing, but minus the harmful pollutants. Soda firing uses sodium bicarbonate and/or soda ash introduced into the kiln at peak temperature. The soda swirls unpredictably in the kiln, changing the glazes in wonderful and often surprising ways.

NOTE: the bottoms of soda fired pots are lifted on wads of clay to protect them from sticking to the kiln shelves. These wads leave white marks on the feet of pots. Additionally, soda may bubble up from the shelf further scarring the bottom. All marks are carefully scraped down and sanded smooth to protect your furniture.
