Handmade Ceramic Coastal Jar with Driftwood & Barnacles

15H x 12Dia (cm)

People actually ask if this jar is made from wood! The raw clay is textured to give such an authentic appearance, and the individually sculpted porcelain barnacles make it look as if it’s just been washed up on the beach.    

The reclaimed Bombay Sapphire glass used in the lid sparkles like water.

Description

Share

I love working from my garden studio. I threw this stoneware jar and lid on my potter’s wheel and when is was leather-hard I turned the base to give it a neat finish. I then carved the driftwood effect and sculpted on the porcelain barnacles. After an initial kiln firing (bisque) at 900 degrees C, I painted it with a single coat of transparent glaze outside, 3 coats of white gloss glaze inside, and added the crushed Bombay Sapphire glass into the recess of the lid. The jar then went back into the kiln to be re-fired at 1250 degrees C, over another 3 days. 

Inspiration

The majority of my work reflects my joy of diving and the deep blue. My pottery captures the mysteries of the sea, I’ve always had a Saltwater Spirit and love living by the coast. I want my art to invite you to touch and explore the forms.

Seize that sense of other-worldliness, a watery feel of sunken treasure.   

Stoneware is extremely resilient and watertight.

This stoneware vase is foodsafe.

Wherever possible I use recycled packaging, it’s friendly to the environment and keeps the costs down. If this is a gift, please let me know and I will enclose a hand-written note with a personal message from you.
