Ironwashed Shino Basket
Dimensions: 7"h x
10"l x 6"w
This piece was
wheel-thrown, textured, cut in half, opened up, placed on a clay slab, and
reassembled. Hand-built feet were added and a wheel-thrown handle
was attached to the top. All seams are emphasized. The inside
and handle of the basket were glazed in an orange shino glaze. The
outside of the body was washed in a solution of red iron oxide and water.
The piece was then fired to
Cone 10 in a propane-fired reduction kiln.
