Stoneware Ringed Pitcher
So much goes into a hand thrown piece as the potter works their skill. A carefully measured slab of clay, a guiding hand over the spinning wheel and the precise amount of pressure to raise the piece and add all the details.
This piece has more. After the rings are pressed into the sides, the alternating bands are waxed then the entire piece is glazed. While firing, the wax burns off exposing the raw clay allowing the salt firing process to do its magic and create this fine, distinct patina.
