Inspired by the cherry tree in my garden, I love the way the effects from the smoke firing contrast so well with the layered glazes. We’ve had some amazing rain storms this spring with incredible dark skies and this Moon Jar reflects this, with the dark areas of smoke effect alongside the delicate pinks and blues, of the cherry blossom and the sky.
Handbuilt by placing coils of clay in hemispherical moulds, and then joining the 2 halves together once they have strengthened. The glazes have been applied with a natural sponge and once glaze fired the Moon Jar has been smoke fired, to colour the naked areas of clay and accentuate the crackle in the glaze. Please not the Moon Jar is not fully waterproof.
