1 in stock
A translucent porcelain vase, with wheel thrown terracotta wild clays collected from Tamborine Mountain on the base. Some subtle nerikomi inlay along the top. Fired to cone 9 in an electric kiln.
A series of vases that pay attention to local materials and the beautiful shifts in materials during firing. Playful manipulation of function, influenced by the natural push and pulls of mountain earth.
Please note, the work you are purchasing is of an experimental nature. I like to use found materials and push my clays to extremes. The pot has been tested for leaks prior to sale. Sealed with Liquid Quartz.
A vase made from porcelain, terracotta wild clay and porcelain inlay.
12cm wide 14cm high
All of my ceramic pieces sold are useable and made to store liquids. The body of each piece is made using one of Australia’s finest porcelains, fired to 1280°C and fully vitrified. Due to the nature of combining various stoneware, raw minerals and porcelain clays, your work may have some very superficial (thin and only surface deep) spilts on the outside. This is rare, but does not change the function of the work. If your cup/vessel leaks, of course please contact me, however, all cups are checked and tested before sale.
If your ceramic piece has not been glazed, rather has a polished finish, I have applied Liquid Quartz ceramic sealer, which is a food safe, permeating sealer designed for use on unglazed ceramic ware.

Careful hand washing of your ceramic ware is advised.
