The organic shape of this box feels great in your hands. Carved on the sides, with a smooth top. Glazed off-white outside, the iron flecks in the clay body come through in the firing. The inside is glazed a blue-black which caused the interesting rust color on the rim; a firing effect from iron in the clay called ‘fuming’. It was fired in a gas reduction kiln to cone 10.

This was designed to sit two ways. The lid of the box side becomes a stand when it is positioned as a bowl. Flipped over the box rests on the bowls contours. Inside is a glossy inky black glaze. The contoured side is created using a slump mold of clay. The box top was made using a bisque mold with hand-built lip added. It was carved when leather hard. The piece was fired in a gas fired reduction kiln to cone 10.

It has a strong textured outside, glazed in off-white, with iron flecks from the firing coming through. It was fired in a gas reduction kiln to cone 10.
