The process of making a pet fired bud vase Begins at the potters wheel, The vessel is thrown and then semi-burnished, left to dry and then the burnishing is completed. It is then fired to bisque temperature and the fun can begin! I go out into the countryside and along the coastline where I live in Cornwall on the Lizard Peninsula and collect organic materials which can be fired surrounding the pot which create all the interesting colour and pattern that you can see on the pot. On this vase I can see that it has been heavily influenced by seaweed - you can see a lot of the detail from the plant! This is because I have wrapped the pot with paper clay prior to firing it! It's an extra step but well worth the effort when you get results like this! The vase has been cleaned thoroughly and waxed to a lovely smooth finish which is very tactile. A pit fired pot Should be picked up and observed because every angle around 360° is different and you could have a different view for every day of the year! Please note that pit fired vases are porous and should only be used for decoration or dried flowers!
This bud vase is 13cm tall and 13cm wide
