This blue smoke-fired ceramic pot has been made from porcelain, burnished prior to firing (smoothed with a piece of glass) and then partially glazed and fired in my electric kiln.
I have used copper carbonate as a paint to add further textural markings to the surface.
Next, the gold lustre has been added and fired on, again in the kiln.
After the electric kiln firings the pot was smoke fired in sawdust. The sawdust must be packed in a specific way and only a certain type of sawdust is used.
There is a lovely rainbow effect captured on the gold lustre at the top.
Lastly it has been cleaned and waxed with beeswax.
The height of the pot is 13cm.
The width is 16cm.
