Edo Jar in Ash Glaze 12"h

325.00

A classic shaped vase influenced from Ben’s time in Japan. It is a blend of cobalt, iron, mica enriched clay and natural ash accumulation from the wood firing process. Measuring 12”h x 8” x 8”. Please note: What appears to be white spots on the surface are reflections from photo lighting.

The Natural Ash Glaze is produced by relying on the wood-firing process as the glazing agent. Most pieces dedicated to this glaze are placed in the kiln with little or no glaze applied to the exterior. During the firing process, the wood is stirred occasionally in the firebox to give flight to the flakes of ash that are produced during the firing. When these small flakes become airborne, they cling to the exposed areas of the pots and accumulate over a period of time. As the kiln reaches about 2300 degrees Fahrenheit, the wood ash will liquify and begin to run down the side of the pots, as if one had poured honey on the vase.
