This minimalist wheel thrown vase is made with stoneware clay and my own custom glazes in Cloud - which is a satin white with subtle mottling and Gray which can look both taupe and gray, and shows a lot of rustic character.
Measures 5.5 inches tall x 3 inches wide.
Always Hand Made: All items are one-of-a-kind, and thrown by hand so small variations in size and color may occur and add to the item's uniqueness and beauty.
Why wheel-thrown? Handmade pottery is to a me a testament of slow living and quality - art that can stand the test of time and be used daily. Throwing pots on the wheel is a surprisingly long and special process. Each piece begins with a humble ball of clay, which is altered and shaped while spinning on the wheel at a constant and intentional speed. After the piece has dried to the ideal leatherhard stage it's placed back on the wheel where I trim away any excess and finish the base. Each piece goes through two kiln firings - the first to reach the bisque stage and the second once it's been glazed with my handmade glazes.
Care: Dishwasher and microwave safe, although handmade ceramics will always benefit from a gentle touch.
Handmade in Portland, Oregon.
