It’s fascinating what happens to a glaze in the kiln as it fires – the glaze becomes molten and moves like honey over the surface of the pot. Some glazes move more than others. I applied the glaze, white and oriental blue, using a sponge and a brush respectively and it appears the blue glaze has splashed across the surface, giving a wonderful sense of movement , as if the moon Jar was spinning and the glaze has whipped around the pot.
Made from coils of white earthenware clay, lain in a mould, the Moon Jar was first bisque fired and then glazed. This glaze firing temperature was 1040 degrees C, so the Moon Jar is not suitable for use with liquids.
