about this piece:

"Top-Cocked Bottle," #00-164

17 cm x 12 cm x 12 cm

Side-fired Porcelain

Copper colorants enhance the drip from the top of the bottle. Viscous caramel drips converge at a copper-tinged "dragon-fly-eye" drip near the bottom of the bottle. Crystal growth in the glaze matrix adds to the overall complexity. Side-fired on shells to cone 10 in a gas-reduction firing.
