Smoke fired stoneware pinch pot.
Delicately coiled and burnished using a stone to create a wonderful patina. Having been fired once in an electric kiln, it was then smoke fired over a 24 hour period. The marks have been made by burning thistledown and sawdust, grass and stems from the garden.
This one is a small dish-like shape, 5.5 cm high, 7.5 cm wide. It feels lovely and smooth.
The rough and jagged lip of the pot is to both reflect the skyline I saw towards Beachy Head during my residency at Hawthbush Farm, but also to show off the texture of the clay.
