Feather & Horse Hair Vessel

Wheel thrown, burnished and finished with six layers of terra sigilata. The simplicity of this beautiful style belies the labour of love to create its silken surface.
The pot is fired twice, after the second firing, the glowing pot is removed from the kiln, at approx 650 degrees, the feathers and hair are placed on the hot surface, immediately burning into the surface.
The vessel is cleaned and waxed.
This is a decorative piece, not for food or liquids.
