Kerámia urna samottos masszából. Selymes , lágy felületű, viasszal kezelt.   

 There is no glaze on these pieces. They are wheel thrown white clay. Once dry, terra sigillata, a suspension of the very finest particles of clay, is applied to the surface. The application is repeated, polishing between coats, until the piece is polished to the worn smoothness of a river stone. Each is fired nested in saggars with sawdust and mineral soaked straw in an outdoor kiln. The color comes from the fire. The volatilized materials leave their marks in the surface.

 

Setting the circumstances for serendipity and painting with the power of fire yields results that echo the random beauty of nature. What comes out of the kiln, although a direct result of what goes in, is always a mystery.

 

The clay must remain porous in order to absorb the effects of the fire and so they have the softness of ancient and primitive pottery. While they are not intended to hold water wetting will not damage them. They may be cleaned with water, and have been polished with a fine protective wax.

 

The urn price is Studio price.
