Soda Fired Bottle - Pottery Bud Vase
This little bottle reminds me of a fish. I glazed it with a clear glaze on the inside, and left the clay bare on the outside. Then, it was fired in a soda kiln. In a soda firing, when the kiln gets to over two thousand degrees near the end of the firing, a brick is removed and baking soda or soda ash are blown in. It volatilizes in the heat and air and blows around to create shiny surfaces and flecks. The color of the clay was also effected by the open flame, toasting it to a rich brown on one side and orange on the other. This piece measures about 4.25" tall I will happily combine shipping.
