Matte Black Bottle Vase
This piece was thrown, trimmed, and hand-stamped in Irvine, California using Obsidian clay. The trimmed piece was then bisque fired at Cone 5 in Laguna Beach, CA. During a 24 hour firing, Cone 5 clay bodies sinter into ceramics around 1900 degrees Fahrenheit (shrinking 12-14% during bisque!). The final steps include dip glazing the interior, and glaze firing once again at Cone 5.
This bottle could serve as a water vessel as well as a small flower vase. Please reach out for further details.
