The volcano vase

I've just taken some new shots of this piece which was fired back in September...I'm quite proud of this one, mainly because it came out of the kiln exactly as I'd hoped. Something which doesn't often happen with wood firing!

It's snowing outside, minus 2 degrees C, so I'm hiding in-doors, taking photos of pots until the kiln warms up the workshop a little. I don't mind working in the cold, but when the water buckets have iced over, that's where I draw the line when it comes to throwing clay.


  1. This is wonderful! I like it! Inside looks shino to me. It really looks like volcanic mountain!

    1. Thank you very much, it was one of my favourite pots. Yes, it's shino inside.
