Hand thrown vase fired in reduction atmosphere. Interior is lined with a deep metallic brown Tenmoku glaze. While exterior features a light grey-blue surface that turns fiery orange. You can see how the fires danced across the surface of this vessel as it fired laying on its side. Shells were used to raise this piece off the kiln floor, and their natural relief dots the surface in 3 places across the face of the piece. A small bowl from a fellow potter was fired on top of this piece. You can see evidence of this on the back side of the Moon, with a triangle of three small shells where the bowl as delicately balanced through the firing.
