Genie in a Bottle 4.5"t #19
This specialty piece of saggar pottery is one of a kind it will never be reproduced. It has been handmade through an intense process of using organic matter to impress the outside of the piece. After a piece is thrown and trimmed, a terra sigallate (an old roman recipe) is applied three times to the fragile greenware and carefully burnished between each coat using a leather cloth. After burnishing, it was then fired again in the kiln. This piece was then wrapped in dried apricots, bananas, roses, hydrangeas, coffee beans, pumpkin seeds, peach pits, iron oxides, steel wool, copper, avocado, hemp leaves, kelp, seaweed and various dried organics. Then the piece was placed in a single saggar pot (a lidded vessel) and fired once again. Your piece was then removed from the kiln and allowed to cool; it was then washed by hand and allowed to dry thoroughly, and then burnished three more times using beeswax and burnishing in between each coat with a new leather cloth. The end results are stunning. Saggar pieces are works of art.
