Black and Blue Vase 8.5 in / 21.5 cm
8.5 x 8.5 inches (tall x wide),
21.5 x 21.5 cm (tall x wide)
This piece was thrown by me on a pottery wheel. After the initial bisque firing, I apply a pattern with thin detailing tape by hand. Layers of underglaze were sponged onto the surface, the tape removed, more layers of underglaze, slowly sanded by hand to reveal the base layer of color, a round of cleanup, and then the final firing to over 2,000 degrees F (1,090 C).
