Ten inch tall jar thrown with recycled studio clay pugged with added red iron oxide. Wannamaker glaze was poured over the exterior. White areas have the thickest glaze. The rim was dipped after pouring.
Lidded jar, 16 inches tall, thrown with studio pug clay with added red iron oxide. Spray glazed with a coat of Bone Ash, followed by a varied coat of red iron oxide, then another coat of Bone Ash. The iron spots are eruptions of oxide added to the clay body.
These two pieces were thrown as a pair. The lidded jar is 15 inches tall and 10 inches wide. The vase is over 11 inches tall and wide. Both pieces sprayed with Bone Ash glaze over red iron oxide spray.
