📖 THE PROCESS:
This handmade barnacle vase starts as a single ball of clay, and a vase is formed by hand. Texture is added and the foot is created.Next, each barnacle is meticulously handmade and attached to the piece, inspired by underwater life and is ready to #admire from every angle.Finishing touches are added with shells attached to the face of the piece. Gentle curves around each barnacle also serve as a function to catch the drippy glazes.
After drying, the piece is carefully loaded into the kiln and is bisque fired, then glaze and iron oxides are added to the piece, and the piece fired for a second time to transform into a work of art.
