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 a silicious rice straw ash blended with other collected minerals and prepared ashes. In some areas, an opalescent blue color can be seen caused by the straw ash's abundance of naturally occurring silica. Reduction fired. Watertight, ideal for wet or dry flower arrangements, or as a stand-alone piece.
