about this piece:

"Torque-Topped Vase," #00-160

18 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm

Side-fired Porcelain

This vase was thrown, altered, and handled while on the wheel. The interior of this pot was filled with glaze for 30 minutes to allow some of the glaze solubles to accumulate and move into and through the pot -- the crystal-laden surface is one result of this rather unorthodox glazing process. Tri-podded and side-fired on shells in a cone 10 reduction firing, this pot's surface records the glaze movement during the firing.
