The pear has a wonderful rounded form with a stunning, shiny blue and turquoise glaze effect which evokes moving water.
The Pear has been handbuilt, by placing coils of clay in 2 hemispherical moulds, joining them and then adding a further hemispherical sections, made this time, by pinching the clay. The base and spout have been added separately. The glaze is a pale turquoise, with a cobalt oxide spritz applied. Once fired the crackle has been brought out, through the application of and wiping back of ink. The Pear has not been glazed internally and so best not to use with liquids.
Stands approx 18cm ht and 12cm at it’s widest point.
