Buncheong Medium Moon Jar #111

California wild clays, poured crackle slip, almond ash glaze. 

Made with the coiling techniques I learned while studying Onggi in Korea, the clay used to make this vessel was foraged and processed entirely by hand in my studio. The clay slip is made from Kaolin deposit near the main clay source, and the ash used in the glaze sourced from a local bakery. Paying homage to the moon jar's asymmetry, this piece was just on the verge of collapse in the kiln and caries a strong energy and movement. 

Please note the jar has a small inconspicuous  kintsugi-repaired  area with urushi and gold leaf (see photo) on a small seam that nearly burst open during the long firing. The firing was stopped just in time, freezing this movement in the fired work. A few minutes longer and the jar would have collapsed. 

Dimensions 14.5" x 13.5"  (38cm x 35cm)
