Tall anagama tsubo


Anagama fired jar from the May firing at the Oxford anagama kiln.  This is the tallest of my group of pots in this firing. It was thrown and the sides altered. All the pots went in the kiln completely unglazed and were wood-fired for 3 days and 3 nights. The kiln reached 1300 degrees C which means the clay is absolutely vitrified. All the colours, hues and marks are the result of flames and ash in the kiln atmosphere. The greyish green natural ash shows on the collar of the pot turning from peachy to burnt orange as you rotate the pot and look at the bottom.

The maker’s mark is at the bottom of the pot.
