Striped Planter on Speckled Clay (7 in / 18 cm tall)
Striped Planter on Speckled Clay
7 x 5.5 in (tall x wide), opening at top is ~4 in.
18 x 15 cm (tall x wide), opening at top is ~10 cm.
This piece was thrown by me on a pottery wheel using a speckled clay (though the speckles don't appear until the final firing). After the initial bisque firing, I apply a pattern with thin detailing tape by hand over many hours. Layers of a white and turquose glaze are then brushed, 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.
