This Moon Jar is thrown on the wheel using porcelain and raku clay mix to aid the thermal shock during the firing process.
It is decorated with a Copper Wash solution and fired in a raku kiln with added sawdust. The rim and foot ring are polished terra sigillata and blackens by the burning sawdust.
The rim and foot ring are then polished to give contrast to the body.
It is 22cm high and is one of a kind.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
