Red Bird Bottle

This is a very early piece of mine copying the Bernard Leach shape on the dust jacket of his book. The pot has been dipped into a saturated iron glaze, the birds painted in wax resist then the pot re-dipped into an ash glaze. It is slab built - not molded which is quite a challenge to be sure all the joints are sealed.

  1. this is a great piece, love the shape and how the glaze breaks and the contrast between the red and iron.
