Oil Slick Planter on Speckled Clay (5 in / 13 cm) #5
Planter on Speckled Clay
5 x 5 inches (tall x wide),
13 x 13 cm (tall x wide)
This piece was thrown by me on a pottery wheel using a speckled clay. After the initial bisque firing, I apply a pattern with thin detailing tape by hand over many (many) hours. Layers of a white glaze are brushed on the surface, the tape removed, another round of cleanup, and then the final firing to over 2,000 degrees F (1,090 C).
This piece comes with the drip plate shown and there is a drainage hole in the bottom of the planter.
