Hand coiled and built on a kick wheel using the onggi method I learned in Korea, this series takes inspiration from antique paddled forms from China and Korea in pursuit of a more voluminous and loose rendition to a classic flattened bottle form. The finish is made using foraged iron magnetite slowly gathered throughout the year with a strong magnet from natural rivers and beaches of Sierra Nevada and coastal waters. Blended with a locally sourced almond wood ash that is also prepared in the ancient way. Reduction fired and slow cooled. Watertight, ideal for wet or dry flower arrangements, or as a stand-alone piece.
