This porcelain smoke-fired pot has been thrown and burnished. It has been partly glazed and then had a gold lustre fired onto the glaze.
Then it has been smoke-fired in sawdust which produces the smoky colours and markings.
Finally it is cleaned and polished with beeswax.
To see more of this pot see video 19 in the blog/vlog section which is on the home page at the top on the right.
