Large Jar

About this project

A thrown storage jar. Decorated with coloured glazes over a wax resit motif of plants, birds and animals. Fired in reduction for a rich colour response.
A fascinating pot which has a strong presence.  The subtle colours are built up by applying several layers of decorating glazes above the wax.
This is my favourite pot to come out of the kiln for a long time. I like the way the layers of glaze have given depth to the flat silhouette motifs.
