This vessel has been made with various hand-building processes, these ancient techniques have been used for many of thousands of years. This approach to making pottery allows it to be created without pottery wheels, using only the makers hands and simple tools. I gravitate towards this way of making as it shows evidence of the human hand – the human being behind the work.
Each piece takes many hours to form by hand, then allowing time to dry for a period of 2-4 weeks before the kiln firing process.
This multi-use vessel can be used as an open salt pot, a tumbler in the kitchen or bathroom, or a water vessel for painting, etc. Each piece may differ slightly from the one photographed, as they are each individually hand-built.
Handbuilt in Perth, Australia.
Unglazed stoneware clay.
Measurements: approximately 7.5cm x 8.5cm x H7.5cm
